Eau Claire to consider solar charging stations donation from Xcel Energy

Eau Claire (WQOW) – In an effort to contribute to the excitement of downtown’s redevelopment, Xcel Energy wants to donate solar-powered charging stations to the city. 

Next Tuesday, the city council will decide if they want to accept the donation. According to the agenda, the stations for electronic devices, like cell phones, will be installed in, and near, downtown. If accepted, the city would be in charge of installing and maintaining the stations. 

A representative from Xcel Energy told News 18 they’ve offered the city four poles and it’s up to them how many they accept. They place the total value of the four stations around $10,000.  

"We are excited to provide this donation of renewable, solar-powered, charging stations for Haymarket Landing. We work closely with our communities and non-profit organizations throughout the region to make a positive impact, and this donation complements the wonderful work that is taking place within downtown Eau Claire and Confluence Project," a representative of Xcel Energy said.
