|Electric Car Charging Stations Installed in Transportation Center|
Electric vehicle owners living in or visiting Brattleboro now have a new option for charging their cars. The Town of Brattleboro has installed two electric vehicle charging stations on the first level of the Transportation Center at 77 Flat Street. The chargers are suitable for any all-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle, and will fully charge a battery in approximately 3 to 4 hours, depending on the
vehicle model. There are three parking spaces reserved for cars that are charging. The State of Vermont will be installing signage directing motorists from exits 1 and 2 on route 91 to the stations. The stations are replacing an obsolete charging station that was installed when the Transportation Center was constructed in 2003.

The stations are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and are currently free to the public.
“We are excited to have these stations installed to meet the needs of the growing number of electric vehicle owners in our region,” said Paul Cameron, Town Energy Coordinator. “This is a wonderful amenity that will hopefully attract visitors to our downtown area and support our local economy.”
