Electric Vehicle Charging Station at Wilton Library

Wilton Library has engaged in a two-year research study with CL&P regarding the usage of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS).  One charging station was given to the library because of its central location in Wilton.  The study is being conducted by CL&P to understand how customers charge EVs away from home.  Patrons with electric vehicles are welcome to use the charging station during library hours.
