Chairman of the City of Dover Parking Commission, Charles D. Reynolds, is pleased to announce the opening of parking spaces dedicated for electric vehicle charging in the Orchard Street Parking Garage.

Through a grant from Telsa, Inc., the City received four wall-mount units at no cost, as well as $4,000 towards installation. The Electric Vehicle Charging (EVC) wall units are on the second floor in the northeast corner of the garage, just above the interior entrance to the Police Station. Two wall units are dedicated Tesla units and two are universal stations available to any non-Tesla plug-in electric vehicle. The four units will be shared among three parking spaces to allow for several combinations for universal and Tesla vehicles.

“The electric vehicle market is growing and it was important for the city to promote alternative energy driving options for our downtown employees and visitors,” Reynolds said.

The spaces are paid for by drivers through the regular Pay by Space meter system used throughout the parking garage. There is a four-hour limit on these spaces. Permit holders with plug-in electric vehicles may use these spaces but must adhere to the time limit and move to other spaces once the four-hour period has elapsed.
