The Logan Downtown Alliance, with leadership and financial support from LifeStyle Homes and Wilson Motor Company, has installed Utah’s first-ever Electric Vehicle Charging Station on a state highway after several months of working with the Utah Department of Transportation and Logan City Light and Power.
The EVC station was installed on Tuesday, October 28 and is the first of its kind on a Utah state highway. Not only is the EVC station ready and available for use by the general public, it is also free to use.
The installation of the EVC station on a state highway was only possible because of a successful partnership between the Logan Downtown Alliance, UDOT and Logan City Power and Light Department.
UDOT has issued an encroachment permit allowing the installation of an EVC station for 12 months to allow a period of evaluation. After the evaluation period, UDOT will consider modifying its administration rules to allow EVC station parking stalls on state highways throughout Utah.
