*Spanish River, Red Reef & South Beach locations do provide FREE charging stations, but they require a Beach Parking permit or a paid fee to enter the beach park.
The City recently announced a partnership with Florida Power and Light Company (FPL) in a new pilot program that includes the installation of these nine charging stations.
EV drivers can download the FPL EVolution/ChargePoint app to find and navigate the closest FPL charging station. The app will reroute users to the selected station where drivers will scan a code and connect their EV to the station to begin charging. The app will also provide users with port availability, outages, charging history, trends, nearby amenities and more.

The program will increase the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and provide valuable information about emerging “Vehicle-to-Grid” technology as well as fulfill the need of limited charging stations in the area. The level two, dual charging stations will incrementally charge EVs while drivers are visiting areas around the City. The stations can provide 20 – 30 miles of range per hour.
FPL plans to install more than 1,000 charging stations in more than 100 locations across Florida including public parks, shopping malls and some of the large companies that employ thousands of Florida residents. Charging stations have already been installed in Boca Raton at Office Depot, Inc., SBA Communications and Mutual of America.
