Sustainable Jersey representatives announced that Raritan Township and Hunterdon Medical Center have been awarded a Sustainable Jersey Small Grant. Raritan Township is one of just fifteen municipalities to receive a Sustainable Jersey Small Grant at the $10,000 level. The 2013 Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program has been funded by Walmart and is providing $380,000 in grants to local governments for sustainability projects.

The $10,000 grant will help allow Raritan Township and Hunterdon Medical Center, the largest township and employer in Hunterdon County, to jointly purchase and install a 24/7 accessible electric vehicle charging station. This station will be installed at the hospital. As the only hospital in Hunterdon County, Hunterdon Medical Center has a high traffic volume of approximately 1,000 cars daily. Funding from this grant will help fill an existing gap in Hunterdon County which currently only has two electric car charging stations, one at the Nissan dealership in Flemington and the other at Mrs. Riley’s in High Bridge. This project will provide an electric car charging station available 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
