EVSE Town Hall
The Electrical contractor has made the cut-over for the existing ChargePoint charging station in the Town Hall parking lot on July 8, 2022, and increased charging capacity by 100% with two separate 40-amp circuits. The charging station now draws power from the electrical room in the Town Hall building and relies on renewable energy generated by the Town’s solar panels on the rooftop and in the Native Garden. By increasing demand for power in the electrical room, this allows the Town to take full advantage of free solar energy and reduces back feeding excess solar energy to the power grid. In addition, by switching the power feed away from the Park & Rec building, this will reduce the overall energy bills for the Town, as the electric rates are higher for the Park & Rec building than the Town Hall.

Sewer root foaming 2022
