Terrace Mayor Jerry Smith and Mayor Pro Tem Laura , Community Transit Board Member and Snohomish County Councilmember Dave Gossett and members of the Mountlake Terrace City Council.
This is the first large-scale installation of electric vehicle charging stations in the region outside of Seattle or Everett. The 10 electric vehicle charging stations can charge 20 vehicles and are a part of Coulomb Technologiesí ChargePoint Network, the largest network of independently-owned charging stations in the world.
The stations are available through a grant to Coulomb funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act under the Transportation Electrification Initiative, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Energy.
