The situation is amping up in these Richmond parking lots.
The city is set to accept grants to install two electric vehicle charging stations: one at Kennedy High at 4300 Cutting Blvd., and the other at the West County Family Justice Center at 256 24th St.
The $47,511 in grant funds would come from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s “Electric Vehicle Charging Station Demonstration Program.” The grant program, paid for by the Transportation Fund for Clean Air, requires a city match of $19,476.
On Tuesday, Richmond City Council is scheduled to decide whether to approve the funding plan and move the project forward.
The project is part of a Bay Area-wide effort to “accelerate the adoption” of electric vehicles, according to the city.
