Electrical Vehicle Charging Station Installed in Ramsey Municipal Parking Ramp

The City of Ramsey is excited to announce the installation of its first Electrical Vehicle (EV) Charging Station, located in the Ramsey Municipal parking ramp at 7650 Sunwood Drive NW.  With grant funding from the Twin Cities Clean Cities Coalition (TC4) and the National Park Service (NPS), this project will support the goals of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area’s Alternative Transportation Plan to increase multi-modal access to the regional park and to protect park resources.

The charging station can be found on the first floor of the Ramsey Municipal parking ramp near the south stairwell, and will cost users $1.00 per hour to charge.  Citizens interested in utilizing the charging station will need to set up an account with ChargePoint, by visiting their website at www.chargepoint.com/join

After registering, members will receive a ChargePoint card which they must activate in order to access the charging station.  Upon first use of a paid station, the credit card synced with the user’s account will be charged a $25 deposit which will be applied as a balance on their ChargePoint account.  Each time a customer pays to use a station, the station fees will be deducted from their ChargePoint account balance.  When their account runs low, ChargePoint will automatically charge their credit card $25, or the amount equivalent to three month's average use, so the account always maintains a balance.
ChargePoint members can also download the mobile app, which will allow them to get real-time updates about their charging status, as well as locate other charging stations, their prices and availability.
