Electric: New option coming to Columbus


Columbus is aiming for the future…

A new electric vehicle charger is coming to the downtown area in Columbus this week. It will be near Loup’s Public Power office.

While most Platte County residents still rely on petroleum-powered vehicles, the town of Columbus will now have this new technology option for residents and visitors of the city. 

Nebraska Public Power District has two public chargers already.

The fund for these stations come from the Nebraska Environmental Trust.

The charger will fill the vehicles with 25 miles worth of charge within an hour, for about 50 cents per hour.
