State provides $4M for electric vehicle charging locations

BOSTON (AP) —

Massachusetts has provided an additional $4 million to support more electric vehicle charging stations across the state.

The money comes from the state's portion of the 2017 Volkswagen diesel emissions court settlement.

Of the $4 million, $1.5 million will fund fast-charging stations, $1.5 million will be spent on public-access charging stations, and $1 million will go to workplace and fleets charging station infrastructure, according to state officials.

Gov. Charlie Baker said in addition to cutting greenhouse gases, the electric vehicle charging programs will also provide economic development opportunities and support the growth of innovative clean energy jobs.
