Number of new Level 2 public charging stations
Supports energy office oversight of projects such as the Charge Up! Public Sector Vehicle Electrification Program
In grants provided to local governments
In Rhode Island, the State Energy Office SEP funds support energy office oversight of projects such as the Charge Up! Public Sector Vehicle Electrification Program.
Under this program, the Town of Burrillville has opened four new electric vehicle charging stations, which are free and open to the public. The level 2 charging stations are installed along the Blackstone Valley Bike Path and the Clocktower playground and provide eight new charging ports for local drivers. The town received a grant of $70,500. Burrillville also leased a Nissan Leaf for three years. Because of this program, the town now plans to investigate replacing other fleet vehicles with electric vehicles.
