Sept. 13. Public electric vehicle charging stations are being put in at 568 Jetton St. near Harris Teeter at the Circles @ 30, and at Davidson Town Hall at 216 S. Main St.

Davidson Parks and Recreation, where questions were referred to, could not say how long the installation would take and when the public Level 2 charging stations would be up and running.

The town was recently awarded participation in the Duke Energy Park and Plug Pilot Program, making installation possible.

“We hope that by offering these chargers at key public locations, more people may consider using EVs,” Davidson’s Natural Assets and Sustainability Coordinator Charlene Minor said. “We know EVs provide a better option with less impact to the environment for those who must travel by car. Everything we can do to make Davidson a more sustainable community is a big win.”

Installation began Monday, Sept. 12. Davidson is reviewing additional locations for additional charging stations and hopes to take advantage of state and utility rebate programs.
