Port commissioners voted 4-1 to install a fast-charging station for electric vehicles in the parking lot near the Exploration Tower in the port’s Cove area. Nissan will pay the $31,000 cost of the equipment, and Port Canaveral will pay the $18,376 for engineering, design and installation work.
Fast-charge stations can provide an electric vehicle with a full charge in less that 30 minutes, according to Carol Noble, the port’s director of environmental plans and programs.
Separately, the port plans to install slow-charging stations for electric vehicles in the Disney Cruise Line long-term parking garage, which port Chief Executive Officer John Walsh said was a suggestion of Disney officials, stemming from requests of Disney customers.
That project will cost less than $10,000 for engineering, design and equipment, Noble said.

Do you want to learn more about how much a compressed natural gas fueling station costs?
Clean Cities has been working closely with the CNG industry to create a report on the Costs Associated with CNG Vehicle Fueling Infrastructure (PDF file). This document provides an overview of the components of a station, factors that can affect the cost, and ballpark cost ranges. Look for the release of this document in early September.
Also, save the date for a Clean Cities CNG Infrastructure webinar on September 16th from 3-4:30pm ET. Mark Smith from the US Department of Energy and John Gonzales from the National Renewable Energy Lab will present an overview of the key components of a CNG station, how a CNG station works, and factors that affect the cost. Jeremy Talbot from Phoenix Energy will describe the design and costs of a CNG station on the smaller end of the design range. Graham Barker from ANGI Energy Systems will describe the design and costs of a larger CNG station example. During this webinar, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about the presentations as well as the content of the related CNG infrastructure document.
This webinar is open to the general public, especially those considering CNG, and no pre-registration is required.
