On May 31, 2022, the city opened a two port, Level 2 electric vehicle charging station in the Orchard Drive public parking lot. The city joined several other Miami Valley communities in an Ohio EPA grant application to help fund the project. The application was submitted through the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission. Oakwood was awarded $15,000 towards the $24,000 project. Several years ago, Dorothy Lane Market built an electric vehicle charging station in its parking lot.
