The project is creating a network of mostly on-street electric vehicle chargers to serve Evie carshare and public charging for personal electric vehicles. Each EV Spot will include 4-6 on-street parking spots. Most locations will have two dual-port level 2 chargers, with one charger dedicated to Evie carshare and the other dedicated to public charging. A limited number of locations near regional destinations or freeways will require additional parking spots in order to provide fast charging. The EV Spots will also include electrical service cabinets in the boulevard, and in some cases an additional transformer cabinet.
The network will include 38 EV Spot locations in Saint Paul and 32 in Minneapolis.
EV Spots will be built in 2021 and 2022, with completion occurring by June 30, 2022.
