Charged Up: Largo EV Celebrates 4K Uses in 2020

The City of Largo’s electric vehicle charging station at the Central Park Performing Arts Center (CPPAC) is celebrating its 4,000th use this April, with an average of 40 charging sessions each month from June to December of 2020. That is equal to 1,302 kilowatt hours (kWh) 104 gallons of gasoline or about 39 25-gallon full trash bags that will not hit the landfill each month.

The City of Largo currently owns seven electric vehicle (EV) chargers that are free to use throughout the community.  The EV chargers are set up at the following seven locations: Belcher Soccer Complex, Largo City Hall, Largo Public Library, Largo Police Station, CPPAC, Southwest Recreation Center, and Ulmer Park.  All stations are considered Level 2 charging stations, except station located at CPPAC which is a Level 3 station.

The Ulmer Park station, which had been disconnected due to construction along West Bay Drive, is now ready for use. Ulmer park consists of green space and outdoor shopping plazas and is a great resource for Largo residents located on the south side of West Bay Drive, just West of Seminole Boulevard and Missouri Avenue.

These chargers support the City’s commitment to transition to 100 percent renewable energy by 2035 and a 100 percent alternative-fuel light duty fleet by 2030.For a map of the City’s chargers and more on the City’s transition to renewable energy, please visit
