Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Welcome to the City of West Palm Beach’s vehicle charging stations…
In 2011, through U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant funds the City of West Palm Beach purchased and installed seven electric vehicle charging stations. Two of these charging stations are open to the public, free of charge. These chargers are located on the third floor of the Clematis Street Garage located at Clematis Street & Quadrille Boulevard. Four chargers located on the 5th floor will be available for public use 9AM to 3PM when not in use by the City Fleet vehicles. An additional dual charger was installed in 2015 through funds from an Energy Performance Contract. It is located in the City Center Garage at Banyan Street and North Dixie Highway and is also free and open to the public.

The following will take you through the steps necessary to charge your vehicle at any of the publicly accessible City of West Palm Beach Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS):
Step 1: When you pull up to the EVCS check to make sure it is not in use by another vehicle.
Step 2: There are 3 ways to access the EVCS: ChargePass Card, RFID enabled credit card, or call 1.888.758.4389. Since the charging stations are free of charge your credit card will not be charged by accessing or charging your vehicle.
Step 3: Once the station has been activated through step 2, a light will illuminate around the plug/holster, press the button on the top of the handle and remove the SAE J1772 connector and plug it into your vehicle.
Step 4: When you are finished charging tap your ChargePass Card or RFID credit card on the station’s reader symbol and the station will display a message indicating that the charging session has ended.
