Kendall Yards adds electric car charging stations

SPOKANE, Wash. - The bustling neighborhood of Kendall Yards in downtown Spokane continues to add new things to its area.

The newest addition is a pair of charging stations for residents' and visitors' electric cars.

Avista, in cooperation with Kendall Yards, has put in two charging stations, one fast charging and one normal, in the parking lot behind the Providence Medical clinic in the neighborhood.

The two stations are capable of charging 4 electric cars at a time. The normal charging station charges your vehicle in around an hour. The fast charger, however, is able to charge your car battery from 0% to 80% in less than 30 mins.

A resident told us that the parking lot has the capability to add another station if need be, bringing the total amount of chargers to 6.

Avista also has plans to implement more chargers throughout the neighborhood if the demand for them increases.
