The future has arrived in The Hub City.

Here's another reason to celebrate Lafayette: the very first vehicle charging station drawing power from locally - sourced solar power is opening on August 1st at Cajun Field. According to Developing Lafayette, Lafayette Parish already has an EV station in Scott, but this the first in the state primarily charged with local solar power.

The charging station is in the Cajun Field parking lot just south of the field. Click here to see pics from Developing Lafayette and learn more about the station and the process of collecting the solar power it uses.
