More vehicle charging stations are part of state’s goal of less pollution on roads

Norwich – The two electrical vehicle charging stations in the parking garage at Mohegan Sun are getting such frequent use by hotel and casino customers that the tribe is hoping federal or state grants will become available to help fund an expansion.

“We’d definitely be interested in six or eight more chargers for our facility,” Jean McInnis, administrator in the Mohegan Tribe’s environmental protection department, told two officials from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Tuesday during a meeting about the state’s plan to increase the number of zero-emission vehicles on the state’s roads.

The meeting, at Norwich Public Utilities, is one of a series of sessions across the state to present a draft plan to expand the network of electric charging stations and hydrogen filling stations, as well as the number of plug-in hybrids, electric cars and fuel cell vehicles on the state’s roads. There are 160 charging stations at 100 locations across Connecticut, as well as one hydrogen filling station in Wallingford, DEEP environmental analyst Jennifer Reilly said. Of the 3 million vehicles registered in the state, about 1,000 are alternative-fuel vehicles, DEEP environmental analyst Paul Kritzler said.
