These devices are called “ Light & Charge ” because they can be combined with streetlights , giving them a dual purpose as electric-vehicle (EV) fuel stations. Anyone with an electric car may stop and buy electrons.
Starting Tuesday, the zoo will make three stations available that can fill a BMW i3 in four to five hours, the company said. A faster-charging station will be added soon. The stations are in the Otter lot along Phinney Avenue North, and each can charge two cars, for a total of eight.
