SUNNYSIDE, WASH., USA, December 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The City of Sunnyside has installed four new SemaConnect electric vehicle charging stations in Central Washington. Thanks to funding from Pacific Power and the Port of Sunnyside, the new charging stations will support local business and provide a necessary charging amenity along the I-82/YVH corridor. The four stations are mounted on two dual pedestals on South 5th Street near the Central Park main entrance.

The new SemaConnect Series 6 charging stations are designed for the outdoors with a slim, rugged build, interactive LED lights, and network connectivity. With the SemaConnect Network, drivers can find live station status, get directions, and pay for power. City officials can set pricing and view reports on usage and sustainability. Sunnyside will receive three years of SemaConnect’s Full Service Package, which includes full replacement warranty, full Network services, over-the-air updates, and 24/7/365 customer service.

“Electric vehicles are growing in Washington, and they’re coming to Sunnyside,” said Shane Fisher, Public Works Director at the City of Sunnyside. “Local business owners contacted the city about adding new downtown amenities for tourists, and we leapt at the chance to support local Sunnyside businesses like nearby Varietal Brewing and Co Dinn Winery. We invite travelers on I-82 to plug in at our new SemaConnect charging stations and explore everything that Sunnyside has to offer.”

“The City of Sunnyside is perfectly situated on I-82 to support EV drivers traveling in Washington,” said Eric Smith, Sales Manager at SemaConnect. “SemaConnect charging stations are a great way for a city to become a travel destination.
