In conjunction with National Plug-In Day to raise awareness of electric vehicles, state and local leaders gathered today on Church Street in Burlington to show off the latest models and announce new resources for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations.

Two new initiatives to support electric vehicles in Vermont were announced today. The first initiative expands the State Infrastructure Bank (SIB) loan program administered by the Vermont Economic Development Agency (VEDA). This initiative was spearheaded by a local investment working group including State Treasurer Beth Pearce, VEDA Executive Director Jo Bradley, VEIC Transportation Director Karen Glitman, Representative Diane Lanpher, and community and business leaders.

The second initiative, developed by the Agency of Natural Resources and the Agency of Commerce and Community Development, provides financial resources for electric vehicle charging stations in Vermont’s designated downtowns.

“Making Vermont downtowns electric vehicle-friendly is just another part of our broader strategy to keep these communities strong and vibrant,” said Governor Peter Shumlin. “This effort will create opportunities for drivers of electric vehicles to shop, eat, work – and charge their cars – in Vermont’s downtowns.” Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Deb Markowitz added, “Providing charging opportunities in places people visit will encourage electric vehicle use, improving our air quality and combating climate change.”
