Riverside County McDonald's Makes History

The restaurant that made the record books is located at 2242 University Avenue in Riverside.

A McDonald's in Riverside became the nation's first to offer a free fast charge to electric car drivers, the operators announced today.

Starting today at the restaurant at 2242 University Ave., customers can hook up to a Blink Direct Current Fast Charger or a standard Blink pedestal charging station.

"It's thrilling to be Riverside's source for the latest in fast charge technology," said co-owner  Candace Spiel, who with husband Tom runs nine Inland Empire restaurants.

Electric car drivers will be able to charge their batteries up to 80 percent in less than 30 minutes using the fast charger -- for free. Members of the Blink network can charge at the Level 2 pedestal charger for as low as $1 per hour. --City News Service
