Charging station to be installed at marina

MOUNT DESERT — The Board of Selectmen voted Monday to use up to $3,200 in contingency funds for installation and the first two months of operating costs for a proposed electric vehicle (EV) charging station at the Northeast Harbor Marina. It is a project of the town’s Sustainability Committee.

“We have been trying to initiate charging stations in the village and eventually in other locations in the town to encourage EV usage and begin to promote Northeast Harbor as a destination for EV owners,” said Selectman Gordon Beck.
