Sandy City opens 45 electric vehicle charging stations made possible by Rocky Mountain Power grant

June 12, 2019

SANDY, Utah – Wednesday Sandy City leaders celebrated the opening of 45 new electric vehicle charging stations installed at municipal facilities.

The project was made possible by a $308,000 grant from Rocky Mountain Power, as well as additional funding from UCAIR and the Department of Environmental Quality, totaling $452K.

“Our goal is to incentivize the move toward electric vehicles, as this will drastically improve our air quality — and ultimately, our quality of life,” said James Campbell, Rocky Mountain Power policy and projects advisor. "Creating a strong EV infrastructure is key to getting there."

Sandy City’s electric vehicle charging stations are available at the following locations:

  • Sandy City Hall (13) including two DC fast chargers
  • Alta Canyon Recreation Center (6)
  • Sandy City Parks and Recreation Building (6)
  • Sandy Amphitheater (10)
  • Sandy City Public Works Building (4)
  • River Oaks Golf Course (6)

"Our ultimate vision is to have enough charging stations to allow EV drivers to travel freely from Disneyland to Yellowstone and everywhere in between," Campbell said.“
