Electric vehicle owners driving the West Coast Green Highway will get a charge out of visiting Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula, one of the eco thoroughfare’s newest stops.
Pacific County’s first public charging station is in downtown Long Beach near Veteran’s Field in the parking lot at Oregon Avenue S and Fourth Street SE. The two-car EVPlug Level 2 charging station went live in late March, joining private charging stations in Seaview and Long Beach.
The new public charging station in downtown Long Beach provides about 25 miles of juice every hour a car is plugged in. A full charge typically takes three to four hours. Situated in downtown Long Beach, the charging station is just a short walk to restaurants, shops and the Bolstad Beach Approach.

From Teslas to Toyotas, Peninsula charging stations accommodate almost all electric vehicles. Other local EV charging stations include:
Adrift Hotel & Spa, Long Beach For guests only. No surprise that one of the hippest hotels on the Peninsula is also one of the eco friendliest. The charger offers a SemaConnect-ChargePro Level 2 J1772 connection.
