Electric vehicle charging solutions provider SemaConnect has been selected by the Town of Bethel, Connecticut to install electric vehicle charging stations.

According to the company, the electric vehicle charging stations will offer residents and tourists an additional location to charge their electric vehicles.

SemaConnect Business Development vice president Mark Pastrone said, "Connecticut really is a trailblazer when it come to the encouragement of electric vehicle adoption.

"With 50 of Connecticut’s 169 communities already offering electric vehicle charging stations, we are pleased to be working with the Town of Bethel on offering additional charging stations and helping with the effort to encourage the use of electric vehicles," Pastrone added.

SemaConnect said the networked electric vehicle charging stations and web-based management software makes it easy for station owners to deploy at their properties.

The stations are sophisticated networked Level II (240V, 30A) commercial grade and comes bundled with a web-based management software called SemaCharge.

With the software, station owners can manage time-of-use pricing with built-in payment gateway, run sustainability reports on fossil fuel and CO2 emissions, see real-time electricity metering and manage electric vehicle driver usage.
