A joint effort between Middletown Township and TMA Bucks has netted charging stations for electric vehicles.
These ChargePoint stations are now open for use at the Middletown Township Municipal Center and Department of Public Works building.
The rate is 18 cents per kiloWatt hour, though the township does not profit from this as it is a public service. Most vehicle will cost less than $12 to fully charge, according to the township.
TMA Bucks helped Middletown apply for the grant from the Driving PA Forward program to secure the charging stations. The program is part of the PA Department of Environmental Protection.
Middletown Township Manager Stephanie Teoli Kuhls and TMA Bucks Executive Director Steve Noll championed the results.
“Middletown Township is extremely proud to join the growing network of charging stations for electric vehicle drivers and support clean energy solutions to protect our environment,” said Teoli Kuhls.
“Reducing emissions is an important tool for improving the air we breathe,” said Noll. “We were extremely happy to work together with Middletown Township on this project that will help contribute to cleaner air and lower emissions in the area.”
