Plug in and power up: Red Wing’s electric vehicle charger is officially online
Wednesday, January 23, 2019
On Nov. 17 community members bundled into winter gear and huddled together in the Mural Parking Lot for the unveiling of Red Wing's first municipally owned electric vehicle charging station.
The plan to install a charging station has been discussed by, argued over, and edited for city leaders for over a year. On Sept. 24, 2018, the City Council finally gave the project a greenlight. At the unveiling, Mayor Sean Dowse stated, "I came up in the theater, and they said, 'You know, talent is great, and skill is great, but persistence is omnipotent." Persistence is what got the EV station to town.
