Getting Around is Getting Easier

Before the holiday break, Middlebury installed an ev charging station on Hillcrest Rd., near the Franklin Environmental Center. The station has two ports, and is part of the NRG EVGo network from Green Mountain Power.

The Mill Street charging station has also switched to the EVGo plan, moving away from ChargePoint.The stations are equidistant from my office in the Davis Library, meaning that my choice of charging station is determined by whether I feel like walking up or down the hill at a certain time of day. The extras capacity within walking distance does mean that I do not have to worry about whether there is a free station nearby.

Both EVGo and ChargePoint are needed, since the Planning Commission and some charging stations in Burlington that I use still require ChargePoint. the swipe cards are easy enough to store with credit-card sizes and keychain options.

18 months into the lease it is becoming easier to have an ev (my kids call her “Evie”) in Vermont. Kudos and thanks to Middlebury for including this in the sustainability initiatives.
