Largo installs electric vehicle charging stations

In partnership with Duke Energy, the city of Largo has installed seven electric vehicle charging stations across the community, free for public use.

The final station, a Level 3 charger, was installed at the Central Park Performing Arts Center, next to the Largo Central Park Playground. It is one of only a handful of Level 3 chargers currently available in the county that are capable of rapid charging a vehicle in as little as 45 minutes.

The stations are funded by Duke Energy's Park & Plug program which brings electric vehicle charging stations to communities throughout Florida by providing the equipment, installation, warranty and network connection services free of charge to communities through 2022.
