Burbank Water & Power to Install 16 Publicly Available EV Charging Stations

Transportation Secretary Buttigieg Highlights New Electric Vehicle Charging Station On Earth Day

BURBANK (CNS) - Burbank Water & Power announced today that 16 publicly available electric vehicle charging ports will be constructed in the Community Services Building parking lot nearest the intersection of Olive Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard.

Construction is scheduled to begin May 3 and last five weeks, necessitating the closure of the parking lot until the project is completed. City staff, library patrons and all other visitors can use nearby public parking lots in the area, city officials said.

The installation will bring BWP more than half-way to its goal of adding 24 publicly available EV charging ports during the 2020-21 fiscal year. Other ongoing installations include six curbside EV charger ports at North Hollywood Way near Victory Boulevard, North Buena Vista Street adjacent to the Buena Vista Library, and West Alameda Avenue near South Main Street, and four EV charger ports in the BWP Lake Street parking lot.

“The construction and installation of the 16 EV charger ports at the Community Services Building is an exciting site because it meets three key community needs including, workplace charging, public charging for visitors to downtown Burbank, and residents living within walking distance,'' said BWP General Manager Dawn Roth Lindell. “People who live in multi-unit dwellings often have the highest barriers to EV adoption given the lack of available EV charging stations.''
