Driving Each State into the Future
An expansive nine-year EV program was approved in 2021, offering rebates for eligible charging stations and the associated installation at homes, businesses, and public spaces.
We will also be managing a program to address peak demands of at home EV chargers. The program supports the state’s transportation electrification goals and provides incentives for EV charging in a range of residential, commercial and publicly accessible locations, including underserved communities.
We installed charging stations at more than 400 customer sites through the end of 2021 and built out a $55 million allocation with 3,500 public EV charging ports.
Through this work, we maintained a strong focus on supporting equity, with 19% of EV charging sites installed in environmental justice communities, exceeding our goal of 10%.
We partnered with the City of Boston, E4TheFuture and Nuestra Comunidad to bring charging stations and the Good2Go car sharing program to Bartlett Station in Roxbury, Massachusetts, offering equitable clean transportation options to this neighborhood. We also worked with our regulators in 2021 to seek approval for expanding this program.
AstraZenica's EV charging upgrade
As part of an ambitious goal to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from its sites and fleets by 2025, AstraZeneca partnered with Eversource and the state of Massachusetts to upgrade its facilities in the Boston area to expand employee access to EV charging stations.
The global biopharmaceutical company’s massive new 250-port EV charging hub, located in Waltham, Massachusetts, is the largest of its kind on the East Coast.
We continue to advocate for EV infrastructure in New Hampshire, and have proposed a Make Ready plan that would support electrification of the state’s main travel corridors. That proposal is currently awaiting decision with the Public Utility Commission.
