The City of Burlington has installed an Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station in the parking garage at 414 Locust St. in downtown Burlington – the first EV charging station in a municipal parking lot in the city.

Electric car charging station“Electric vehicles significantly reduce carbon pollution and help to improve local air quality,” said Burlington Mayor Rick Goldring. “The new charging station supports the City of Burlington’s commitment to sustainability and delivers on one of the actions outlined in the city’s Community Energy Plan.”

Located on floor 1A of the parking garage, the recharging station allows electric vehicle owners to recharge their cars in a central downtown location. Two electric vehicles can be charged at one time.

The EV charging station is part of the Community Energy program that was endorsed by city council some time ago and developed with community groups, agencies and businesses.

The plan is an holistic view of how energy is used, conserved, generated and distributed with a focus on how community partners can work together to improve and integrate community energy systems.
