HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is offering incentives for towns and businesses to install vehicle-charging stations for electric cars.
The EV charging stations allow electric car owners to plug in while they are running errands and top-off the charge on the vehicle’s battery.
The state says they have grants of up to $2,000 each available to help fund the installation of the charging stations.
The DEEP is taking applications through September.
There are currently 82 charging stations in Connecticut and the state has a map of their locations on the DEEP’s website.
