Ocean City Opens Four New EV Charging Stations

The new charging stations, found at Ninth Street and Haven Avenue.

From Ocean City

OCEAN CITY – Ocean City activated four new electric-vehicle charging stations in the parking lot at Ninth Street and Haven Avenue this week.

The stations include Level 3 fast-chargers that can charge an electric vehicle in about 45 minutes. The stations are open to the public, and information is available through Chargepoint, PlugShare, ChargeHub and other EV service apps. The new chargers were made possible in part through a $150,000 grant from the N.J. Board of Public Utilities.

“I’m glad we can offer this amenity to our residents and guests, and to see that the new stations are so convenient to our downtown and boardwalk,” Mayor Jay Gillian said.

Charges are 40 cents per kilowatt-hour for energy with an hour of free parking. To ensure that fully charged vehicles do not occupy spaces, there will be a $15 per hour parking fee after the first hour. Special plugs to accommodate Tesla vehicles are expected to be installed within the next month. Until then, Tesla owners can use their own adapters.
