Essex Tech to Install State Funded Electric Vehicle Charging Ports
DANVERS — Superintendent Heidi Riccio is pleased to announce that Essex Tech has been awarded $28,700 through the Department of Environmental Protection’s Massachusetts Electric Vehicle Incentive Program.
The award will fully fund the installation of eight electric vehicle charging ports for staff, students and guests at Essex Tech. The charging ports will also benefit automotive and transportation programs at the school.
“As our society continues to work toward more environmentally friendly lifestyle choices, we’re thrilled to be able to offer charging ports for those that may choose to drive an electric vehicle at Essex Tech in the near future and for our automotive technology students to work with,” Superintendent Riccio said. “I’d also like to thank State Rep. Ted Speliotis for his continued support of Essex Tech at the state level.”
The school tentatively plans to have the ports installed by March at the front of the school’s main building on Maple Street and near the automotive technology department.
