MADISON (WKOW) -- You have probably seen charging stations in parking lots of some businesses in the area. The city of Madison now has a new way to charge their fleet of electric vehicles -- the sun.

The city's first solar powered charging station is now available to use.

"One great example is if we had a power outage. Right now we have roughly 30 electric vehicles in the city, so if we had no power we wouldn't be able to power the electric vehicles. This way we can charge the vehicles with the sun. We can charge two vehicles at one time," said Tyson Roessler.

The charging station installed by Envision Solar is located in the Brayton Lot at the corner of North Butler Street and East Washington Avenue.
