ClipperCreek donates electric-vehicle charging stations in Auburn

ClipperCreek Inc., the Auburn-based producer of electric-vehicle charging stations, is donating two stations for public use in Auburn.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Auburn Multi Modal Station at 11437 Blocker Ave.

A second station was installed recently in the parking lot of Auburn City Hall. ClipperCreek said each donated charging station is valued at about $1,300. Installation costs were covered by a $10,000 Clean Air Grant.

Electric charging services at both stations will be open 24 hours a day, free for public use.

The ClipperCreek sites are Level 2 charging stations equipped with a 240-volt AC outlet. In the Sacramento region, Level 2 chargers typically are found at shopping malls, retail centers, parking garages, EV fleet operations, utility sites and government buildings. Level 2 chargers can fully charge an electric vehicle in about three to eight hours, depending on the make.
