City of Naperville, IL Unveils First Public Car Charging Station, Perfect for the Chevy Volt

Chevrolet of Naperville is very excited to announce that residents and customers who travel to downtown Naperville, Illinois in their Chevy Volt or other electric vehicle now have access to a public charging station that was unveiled last week by the city, where they can charge their car for free.

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Last week the city of Naperville, Illinois unveiled the first of possibly several electric charging stations in the downtown Van Buren Street parking lot. Chevrolet of Naperville is extremely excited that this great city is looking at "green" options for those who choose to drive the Chevy Volt in Naperville, IL or other electric vehicles. The charging stations will be turned on Tuesday, October 16th and will allow users to partially recharge their vehicle for up to three hours. 


City officials expect the charging station to be a big hit and Chevrolet of Naperville is ecstatic to have such a great asset to the community right in the downtown area. City Manager, Doug Krieger said that this station will serve as a test pilot and that if it is popular, more will come. Downtown businesses are very happy about the new charging station as well. They are counting on people doing their shopping and eating out while their vehicle is charging. There are not many other restaurants that you can dine at while charging your car, but Naperville now has options.

Chevy Volt drivers are finding charging their Volt easier and easier these days. An employee of Chevrolet of Naperville, and a Volt driver herself, recently had the new Volt charging system installed right on her garage. The Blink system is great for getting a quick charge and it is the same system that is installed at the Naperville downtown station. A full charge can be had in four hours with the charging system on a Volt.

Chevrolet of Naperville would like to invite any electric vehicle drivers to head downtown and shop, dine and charge their cars. Many people that are visiting Naperville should take advantage of this station as well. Downers Grove, IL Chevy shoppers regularly come in to Naperville and now they can charge their car while they shop. Romeoville Chevy shoppers can come in and see the selection of Volts in our store as well.
