Malloy grants $136K for 56 electric car stations

An overhead charging station from Control Module Industries of Enfield powers an electric car.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has allocated $135,946 in grants to install 56 public charging stations for electric vehicles at 42 locations around the state.

The Malloy Administration wants to end the range anxiety experienced by electric vehicle owners who worry their cars will run out of power before reaching a charging station. Malloy's goal is to have 200 charging stations by year-end.

Connecticut already has 100 charging stations in place. The grants for the additional 56 range between $1,000 and $5,000, depending on the needs of the site.

The 56 new stations will be in Bethel, Bloomfield, Bristol, Coventry, Danbury, Durham, East Haddam, East Hartford, Enfield, Farmington, Glastonbury, Greenwich, Guilford, Hartford, Madison, Middletown, New Britain, New London, Newington, Norwalk, Plainville, Shelton, South Windsor, Southington, Stafford, Storrs, Waterford, Westport, and Yantic.
