EV Charging Stations

30 New EV Charging Stations In Downtown San Diego Courtesy Of Emmes

Downtown San Diego is now home to 30 new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations thanks to Emmes Realty Services.

The new stations are located in the company’s public parking garage at 707 Broadway (707) in the downtown area. Worth noting here is that the garage is offering the stations for free public use through the end of the month (this includes free parking — you need an EV to qualify though, of course).

The new setup represents the biggest concentration of publicly available EV chargers in all of San Diego, and it is well situated, being in fairly close proximity to the Gaslamp District, the East Village, and the B Street Corridor.

“At 707, we’re focusing on innovation and creating a smart workplace for the future. With electric vehicles becoming more popular, we believe it is important to embrace this technology now,” stated Jordan Johnson, vice president, Emmes. “Also, the addition of the EV charging stations ties in perfectly with our strong commitment to sustainability and providing our customers with the highest level of amenities available. So, come park and charge at 707!”

The new EV charging spots are available for reservation through the ChargePoint system and mobile app. The various charging spots are spread throughout the various levels of the garage fairly evenly, rather than being clustered in one area. It should probably also be noted here that the garage offers secure indoor bike storage in addition to car parking — for those who prefer not to drive altogether.

“By 2020, 50% of the workforce will be in the millennial category and they expect amenities like EV charging stations from their employers,” stated Kris Michell, president and CEO, Downtown San Diego Partnership. “Emmes’ charging stations are especially important because they are open to the public. So people who travel to our vibrant downtown for work or play now have a place to charge their vehicle. It is exciting to have companies like Emmes help make our downtown better.”
