Los Angeles – Local state parks received a total of six new electric vehicle (EV) chargers through a team effort by LADWP, Energy Commission and the CA Department of Parks & Recreation. The new chargers will help visitors and park employees alike enjoy the benefits of EVs such as reducing the city’s carbon emissions, saving on fuel costs and helping integrate renewable energy into the power grid. Will Rogers State Historic Park received two chargers for public use and the LA State Historic Park near Chinatown received four public chargers for fleet and employees with three more scheduled for public use.

“California State Parks is proud to be a part of this important effort to encourage drivers to go green, which is critical to preserving our natural resources while allowing visitors to fully experience the beauty of our parks,” said Craig Sap, Angeles District Superintendent for California State Parks. “The Angeles District currently has about 15 EV chargers throughout our parks in Southern California and we’re committed to adding another 10 chargers within the next eight to 10 months.”
