Do you drive an electric vehicle or a plug-in hybrid? If you do you’ll now be able to take advantage of a free electric car charging station which has been installed in the parking lot at Fountain View Recreation Center! The dual station can charge two vehicles at the same time, and will be available for use during Fountain View Recreation Center opening hours. Installation of the charging station will be funded through a grant, and by a $2500 donation from Carol Stream’s Joe Cotton Ford.
