Freeholder Jeffrey Nash, liaison to county’s Division of Environmental Affairs, cruised into a press conference Thursday in an electric Ford Fusion Energi; Ford is partnering with Camden County on the electric vehicle charging stations. He was joined by Freeholder Michelle Gentek in unveiling the stations.

“Today, we’re going back to the future,” Nash said at the Cherry Hill campus of Camden County College. “Similar to the cell phone and the iPad, the electric vehicle is the wave of our future.”

The new charging stations are free to use thanks to a $30,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, which was matched by the county. The project totals $60,000.

Camden County also partnered with ECOtality North America in a cost-sharing program to install the charging stations around the county to “facilitate the use of county residents’ use of electric cars.”
