Cedar Falls Adds Downtown Public Electric Vehicle Charger

The City of Cedar Falls and Cedar Falls Utilities (CFU) have collaborated to bring a public electric vehicle charger to downtown Cedar Falls.

The recently installed dual-port Level 2 charger is located on West Second Street across from City Hall. The charger expands the community’s electric vehicle charging network and encourages visitors to stop in downtown Cedar Falls.

Electric vehicles are growing in popularity across the United States. “We are excited to partner with CFU to provide this option for both our residents and visitors to the downtown area,” said Chase Schrage, Cedar Falls Public Works Director.

"As a community-owned utility, we are proud to support our customers who are adopting this technology. Electric vehicles are environmentally sound and cost-effective. We want to make lower emissions driving more convenient," said Steve Bernard, Cedar Falls Utilities General Manager.

"Installing electric vehicle chargers also helps CFU learn all we can about this technology and the potential impact of increased electric use on our system as EV adoption continues to increase," said Bernard.

The installed ChargePoint charger is compatible with most electric vehicles. Until March 1, residents and visitors can charge vehicles for free. After March 1, EV owners will pay a small fee for a charging session. To use the charger, customers must sign up for a ChargePoint account at www.chargepoint.com or download the ChargePoint mobile app.

Cedar Falls Utilities and the City of Cedar Falls hope to expand the network of public EV chargers in the future to include a DC Fast (Level 3) charger.

CFU customers can participate in additional electric vehicle programs, including the opportunity to join the Cedar Falls Electric Vehicle Community. CFU also offers a commercial EV charger rebate and can serve as a resource for businesses interested in workplace charging. Residents can learn more at cfu.net/EV.
