PORTLAND — Electric vehicle owners can now get charged up at the Elm Street parking garage.

Two Level II chargers are now in service at the garage, with one reserved for the city’s Nissan Leaf. Vehicle batteries can recharge in four to five hours at the station, City Hall spokeswoman Jessica Grondin said in a press release.

The Nissan Leaf, mostly for use by the Inspections Division, has been leased for two years by the city, with half the cost paid by a grant from Central Maine Power Co.
