6 Vt downtowns get grants for EV charging stations

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- A half dozen Vermont communities are getting grants to install a total of 13 charging stations for electric vehicles.

The grants range from more than $6,000 to $30,000.

They'll go to Barre, Bennington, Burlington, Middlebury, Morristown, and St. Albans.

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

Vermont currently has 22 publicly available charging stations.
