The charging station from Indigo Energy sits between the Hunt Tower and the Collegiate Grill and is the only charging station for public use in downtown Gainesville, within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The nearest station is at the Hampton Inn on Jesse Jewell Parkway, a further trek to the downtown square.
