USA: Selectmen Approve Grant Application for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

/Selectmen approved a grant application for electric vehicle charging stations Wednesday night.

The Capital Region Council of Governments has agreed to submit a $32,003 grant application on behalf of the town for three dual charging stations. If awarded, Canton would be responsible for 20 percent, or about $6,400. The federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality Improvement Program funds come through the state Department of Transportation.

The plan calls for one on Main Street in Collinsville, one in the town hall parking lot and the third at the community center. Under the estimated timeline in the grant, the stations could be installed by the summer of 2013.

However, if received, the grant would also have to be accepted by selectmen, the Board of Finance and depending on the source of the town’s funds, possibly a town meeting, chief administrative officer Robert Skinner said.
