Centralina was very excited to attend the ribbon cutting of an EV charger in Statesville on Thursday, 5/27! This fast charger is courtesy of Energy United, ChargePoint, Banner Drug Co, the NC Electric Membership Corporation and funding was provided by the NC VW Settlement through the NC Department of Environmental Quality. Great to see more alternative fuel infrastructure (and vehicles) coming to our region. This charger ribbon-cutting marks the first charger built using VW Settlement funds in our region.
Randy Marion Chevrolet in Mooresville was able to bring around two Bolts and a Mustang Mach E to complement Energy United’s two Tesla Model 3s.
If you’re looking at your own sustainability plans and need funding to implement them, it’s not too late for your municipality or business to get funding for your own alt fuel vehicles/stations through Phase 2 of the VW Settlement.
