A sponsorship from The Autobarn will let the Center for Neighborhood Technology provide no-fee charging at five electric vehicle charging stations in Evanston for the next year.
The agreement also covers three stations CNT owns in Chicago and one in Oak Park.
One Evanston charging station is located in the Chicago Avenue parking lot adjacent to the Evanston Public Library. Two stations each are in city parking lots at 825 Himan Ave. and 2122 Central St.
City officials say Evanston now has 14 EV charging stations, putting it among the state’s top communities in charging stations per capita.
The Autobarn says it’s the top-selling dealership in the Chicago area for the all-electric Nissan Leaf.
