The charging station will allow the drivers to charge an EV at no cost for the first year of operation.

The charging station is incorporated into a striking sculpture of a tree by Vermont artist Kat Clear.

The new Coulomb Technologies CT2100 Chargepoint EV charging station includes customer-oriented features such as on-line and smartphone directions and reservations, driver notification of charge status, and effortless charging session initiation.

The system will also provide feedback so that GMP can better understand how plug-in drivers use charging stations in the community.
