Connecticut Electric Vehicle Owners Get New Charging Stations in Stamford

Connecticut electric vehicle owners will get three new charging stations in Stamford this December under a Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) pilot program.

The new 240-volt charging stations, which will cost about $3,000 each to install, will be located at the Government Center and in both the Summer Street and Bell Street garages.

The Stamford charging stations are part of a statewide program by CL&P to promote the use of electric vehicles and to study how Connecticut electric vehicle owners use the stations. Overall, CL&P will install about 30 charging stations across the state. Other towns participating in the program include Westport, Torrington, West Hartford and Mansfield.

The stations initially will be free but eventually will be switched to a fee system that might use a smartphone application to make payments. The utility estimates that the rates will average about $3 for every two hours of charging.

As fully electric vehicles like the Nissan Leaf and hybrid electric vehicles like the Chevy Volt enter the market in Connecticut, CL&P, the state’s largest public utility, says its pilot program will help prepare for the arrival of the vehicles and help address concerns among current and prospective electric vehicle owners that they aren’t enough charging stations in Connecticut.

Connecticut electric vehicle owners may obtain a full list of charging stations at www.plugmyride.org.
