Are you the owner of an electric car? There are a growing number of places to charge your car in Reston.
Both Reston Town Center and Plaza America recently added electric vehicle charging stations to their parking facilities.
At Reston Town Center, there are four new charging stations on the P1 level of the Promenade Garage at Explorer and Democracy Streets. The stations are on the right-hand side of the Explorer Street entrance of the garage.
Users must have a SemaConnect account to use the stations. Visit the company’s website, www.Semacharge.com or download SemaConnect’s app to your phone to set up an account.
The first four hours of charging is free. It is then $5 an hour every hour.
The other new stations are at Whole Foods at Plaza America, where there are two charging stations in the parking lot.
