There are two electric vehicle charging stations located in downtown Ferndale parking lots.  The City offers  a Power Dashboard that shows the locations and real time availability of these stations as well as actual usage data of the system.  

The City prohibits non-electric vehicles from parking in spaces dedicated for charging electric vehicles.  The penalty for doing so is a $35 prohibited parking citation.
