The City of Milford was awarded a state grant through the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to fund an electric vehicle (EV) charging station at the Milford Public Library.

The funding covered up to $10,000 to purchase and install one pedestal EV charging station, which was installed by Milford’s Department of Public Works.

“The addition of a publicly accessible EV charging station here in Milford strengthens Milford’s commitment to sustainable energy sources and encourages residents to consider alternate fuel vehicles,” said Mayor Ben Blake. “I applaud DEEP for their continued commitment to this program.”

To support owners of electric vehicles, the new charging station will be available free of charge, 24/7.
