Electric Vehicle Charging Station On Line Behind Town Hall

By: BNEWS

 

The first phase of a project to provide green energy to Burlington residents and, eventually, town-owned vehicles has been completed. 

“In September of 2019, the Burlington DPW took advantage of an initiative with Eversource to fund 100 percent of the underground infrastructure costs for a new electric vehicle charging station,” a release reads. “The DPW also applied for a grant with MassEVIP to cover 60 percent of the charging station costs by installing one ADA compliant spot. After months of design work, logistics work, and approvals, the EV charging station project was finally completed on June 10.” 

The charging station, located in the parking lot of Town Hall at 29 Center Street, is now fully operational and will charge $0.20 per KWH. Parking will be free for the first 3 hours and escalate to $2 per hour from hours 3 to 6, then $10 an hour for more than 6 hours of parking. Parking spaces with charging stations for Electric Vehicles are available on a first come, first serve basis for all employees and visitors in accordance with the EV Charging Policy.

There are plans to expand the charging station to allow for more vehicles in subsequent phases in the future.
