USA: Green Mountain Power and City of Montpelier team up to provide a free public electric vehicle charging station

Green Mountain Power (GMP) and the City of Montpelier are excited to announce the opening of a new public electric vehicle (EV) charging station, located behind City Hall. The public will be able to charge their vehicles at the station at no cost for the first year. This is the third public EV charging station that GMP has made available to the people of Vermont.

“We believe that the City of Montpelier is an ideal place for our newest EV station,” said Mary Powell, President and CEO of Green Mountain Power. “Providing this infrastructure across Vermont is a critical step toward the increased use of electric vehicles. This project and others like it are essential to our efforts to make alternative energy vehicles — and the savings they can provide — more accessible to Vermonters.”

“Customers can charge up their electric cars while running errands downtown,” said Montpelier City Manager William Fraser. “This is an excellent partnership that I hope to see grow as the market for electric cars expands.”

This new Coulomb Technologies CT2100 Chargepoint electric vehicle charging station is compatible with all electric vehicles on the market today. It includes customer oriented features such as on-line and smart phone directions and reservations, driver notification of charge status, and effortless charging session initiation. The system will also provide feedback so that GMP can better understand how drivers of plug-in vehicles use community charging stations, so that this public service can continue to improve.
