Coleman on Thursday, April 12, unveiled two new electric-car charging stations within Como Regional Park. The stations, at North Lexington Parkway by Lake Como and at McMurray Fields, capture solar power and can charge two vehicles at a time. They're the first city-owned solar-powered charging stations in Minnesota.
"The systems not only perform great, but they look great, as well," Coleman told a crowd of onlookers.
The charging stations will charge $1 per hour, allowing drivers to quickly "top off" the batteries that power a car's electric motor....Innovation, however, isn't exactly free. The solar charging stations at Como Park cost $35,000 per unit
