Partially funded through the City’s EV Charger Mini-Grant Program (www.charlottesville.org/cityEVnetwork), these charging stations address a critical regional transportation need by connecting Charlottesville to all points north, south and east. This initiative shows the commitment of City of Charlottesville, Virginia Clean Cities and local businesses to the most cutting-edge vehicle technologies, cleaner air and environmental sustainability.
