Brockton goes electric

Brockton will soon install 31 electric vehicle charging stations across the city using a Green Communities Grant issued by the state Department of Energy Resources for $198,000, Mayor Robert F. Sullivan announced.

The grant was part of a $6.2 million “Green Communities” aide package that was one of the final acts of former Gov. Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito as they left office at the beginning of the year. Brockton will use the funding to install thirty-one new electric vehicle charging stations around the City.
