Adding electric vehicle charging stations to crowded neighborhoods without garages will send a powerful message that now is the time we can all buy electric cars. We will reduce pollution and support a transition to clean transportation.
In Massachusetts, approximately 45% of emissions result from transportation, primarily personal vehicles. By creating a readily available, convenient infrastructure for electric vehicles, we can encourage a much higher percentage of our City’s drivers to purchase emission-free vehicles!
Our state and our city have ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Supporting the transition to electric cars with multiple and convenient charging stations is one simple and inexpensive path to achieving these goals. Electric Vehicle owners are the primary beneficiaries of these stations, but we all benefit when less pollution is spewed into the atmosphere!
The City’s cost estimate of $30,000 includes $1,000-10,000 for installation costs and $2,000-5,000 for hardware costs per level 2 station charging station.
