BRADFORD, Vt. —  On Saturday morning, the Bradford Energy Committee will unveil three electric vehicle chargers in the parking lot behind Denny Park, off Main Street.

One of the EV chargers is a lower-voltage device, meant for people who are parking their car to go to work, said committee member Nancy Jones. The other two are mid-level chargers. The project, undertaken by Hartford-based EV charging station contractor Norwich EV, is funded by a grant from the Vermont Agency of Transportation. 

In 2024, and again with Norwich EV, the group is planning to install four DC-fast chargers, the quickest juicing option, Jones said. The second phase is funded with a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure program.

The ribbon cutting and celebration is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Denny Park. The Michael Hahn five-piece band are set to be performing at the event, where there will also be free food and drink, as well as several models of EVs — including E-bikes and electric lawn care equipment — to try.
