SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont motorists who drive electric cars now have a fueling station where they will be able to charge their vehicles at no cost.
On Wednesday, Green Mountain Power and Healthy Living Market unveiled the charging station on Dorset Street in South Burlington that will be free for the first year.
GMP President Mary Powell says making it possible for motorists to charge electric vehicles is critical to the adoption of the growing technology.
This charging station is compatible with all electric vehicles on the market today.
The charging station is different than the traditional gas station model, as fully charging a vehicle can take hours. But the public stations will be used to "top off" electric vehicles to expand their range.
