here is something special coming to the Fifth District of San Bernardino County—it’s the future, and it’s coming faster than you think. On July 31, San Bernardino will host a grand opening for the fastest electric vehicle (EV) charger available on the market. The latest and greatest in EV technology, the Blink DC Fast Charger, located at 1935 S. Waterman Ave., delivers the quickest charge known to date, capable of fully recharging an electric vehicle in fewer than 30 minutes according to the Blink company website. In total, there are 12 active Blink EV chargers in the Inland Empire. The innovative DC Fast Charger is the only one of its kind in San Bernardino County; Fontana Kaiser Permanente is home to

four of Blink’s Level 2 Chargers and Redlands’ Wal-Mart has two. Blink’s parent company, ECOtality, Inc. is dedicated to developing the clean energy future that will one day power our world. In 2009, they were designated to oversee the installation of 15,000 commercial and residential charging stations in 16 cities and six states as part of The EV Project. The project was kick started by a $114.8 million federal stimulus grant made possible through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. That amount was then matched by private investments to total $230 million. Considered as the largest electric vehicle infrastructure development in history, the goal of The EV Project is to “enable the streamline deployment of the next generation of EVs to come” (theevproject.com).

novels, music, audiobooks and more to anyone with a library card for free. “This exciting development allows County residents to take their local library with them wherever they may go and continue their learning pursuits,” said San Bernardino County Librarian Leonard Hernandez.
