SALT LAKE CITY — City officials announced the installation of electric vehicle fast-charge stations in downtown Salt Lake City Tuesday.

“Supporting electric vehicles is another key element of our plan to improve air quality along the Wasatch Front,” said Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker. “Another critical ingredient is collaboration. These new EV charging stations represent how sharing resources among government agencies, and corporate partners like Nissan, can create a positive outcome for all.”

The two new fast-charging stations were donated by Nissan to the Utah Office of Energy Development.

There are six charging stations in various parts of the city.

OED provided the stations to the city, along with one previously granted to Salt Lake County as part of an inter-local agreement signed in early 2014.
