Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Transportation contributes the largest proportion of our states' emissions. We're committed to promoting electric vehicle adoption to help New England reach significant carbon reduction goals over the next few decades.

Our Strategy

Our customers are increasingly considering EVs as an efficient and more environmentally responsible choice. We're working to create opportunities by:  

  • Collaborating with government and industry leaders to accelerate the rollout of charging infrastructure 
  • Investing in research and programs to help make EV technology a viable option
  • Partnering with municipalities and businesses to research charging station installation requirements, driver charging habits and future needs
  • Providing information to our customers considering a switch to an electric vehicle
  • Working with communities to gather valuable feedback about challenges of EV infrastructure programs

Enabling long-distance EV travel

We've joined the Electric Highway Coalition, a partnership featuring seven of the nation's leading utility companies. This coalition will advance clean energy by helping to install a network of electric vehicle charging stations connecting major highway systems.

Driving Each State into the Future

Connecticut

Our goal for is to have 125,000 – 150,000 EVs on the road by 2025.

We are working with the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) on programs to support EV adoption and development of charging infrastructure.

Our funding has included the installation of publicly accessible Fast Chargers and grants to increase the number of publicly available EV charging stations.

To support customers that choose to install publicly available charging stations at their locations, we provide an alternative EV-specific rate option.

EV

Massachusetts

Our goal is to have 300,000 or 15% of projected registered vehicles be EVs by 2025.

We're working on one of the largest public-facing EV infrastructure program outside of California. The goal of the $45 million investment it to triple the number of charging stations to 3,500 charging ports by 2022.

EV stations have been installed at wildlife sanctuaries, Big Y locations and the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority. We also serve as a commissioner on the Zero Emission Vehicle Commission. 

New Hampshire

We are a member of the Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Infrastructure Commission to study and recommend policy on the development of EV charging stations throughout the state.

We proposed a plan to create a Fast Charging network across New Hampshire's travel corridors with the state's other utilities to bolster tourism and bring more business to the local economy while providing environmental and sustainability benefits.

Beyond creating the infrastructure for our customers and communities, we are also expanding our EV programs for employees and electrifying our fleet to significantly reduce our carbon emissions by 2030.
