Shumlin announces 13 electric vehicle charging stations

Gov. Peter Shumlin today announced grants to install 13 publicly available electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in six of Vermont’s Designated Downtowns, an important step to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, implement the Comprehensive Energy Plan, promote more EV purchases and support local economies.

“These charging stations will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, lower the cost of transportation for families and businesses, and modernize our infrastructure,” Gov. Shumlin said. “They also provide an important boost to our downtowns by encouraging folks to shop and dine while their car charges.”

Justin Johnson, Deputy Secretary of the Agency of Natural Resources, agreed. “Concerns about the availability of charging stations can be a significant issue for individuals considering an electric vehicle purchase. This investment in Vermont’s infrastructure helps build confidence in the availability of charging stations, and we hope will encourage more Vermonters to purchase plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles.
