Sure, some cities across the U.S. have one or perhaps two plug-in vehicle chargers, but how
many have thirteen? Well, Hillsboro, OR does. Yeah, the unlikely location is the first in the state to install Coulomb Technologies' Level II ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations and, instead of stopping at just a few chargers, Hillsboro went all crazy and installed a baker's dozen, with more coming soon.

Located 15 miles outside of Portland, the city of Hillsboro is home to just 90,380 people. The quaint place is often referred to as the state's high-tech corridor, so is is fitting that Hillsboro's high-tech reputation is reinforced by its support of electric vehicles.

Thirteen charging stations have already been installed at the city's intermodal transit facility and future plans call for the addition of three more Level 2 units the be installed at the Hillsboro Civic Center. Coulomb's regional distributor, Charge Northwest, handled the install and will maintain all of the area's charging stations. If a relatively unknown city the size of Hillsboro can afford to be home to more than a dozen chargers, then shouldn't we demand that our own small towns follow suit?
