City of Winter Haven Unveils New Electric Vehicle Chargers: Join the Celebration on April 10th

Posted March 24th, 2023

The City of Winter Haven is excited to announce a ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled for April 10, 2023, to celebrate the installation of four new electric vehicle (EV) chargers, providing a total of eight charging spots throughout the city. This marks a significant step in Winter Haven’s commitment to sustainability and promoting eco-friendly transportation options for its residents.

The new EV chargers are strategically located downtown to provide easy access for drivers. Four charging spots are situated in the parking garage at the corner of 3rd Street NW and Ave A NW, with the remaining chargers installed in the newly constructed parking piazza at 4th Street NW and Ave B NW. The ribbon cutting will take place at the parking piazza, just east of the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce building.

Festivities will commence at 5:00 p.m. with a showcase of electric vehicles and informative displays about EV technology, benefits, and the city’s ongoing efforts to expand EV infrastructure. At 5:30 p.m., the Mayor of Winter Haven will plug in his own electric vehicle, deliver a few remarks on the importance of green initiatives, and officially cut the ribbon to signify the launch of the new charging stations.

The City of Winter Haven invites community members to join in celebrating this milestone and learn more about electric vehicles and the city’s dedication to providing environmentally friendly transportation alternatives.
