The Environmental Commission is pursuing the install of a DCFC charging station adjacent to the municipal building. East Amwell is a destination for day trippers to our wineries and farms, and for recreational enthusiasts, as well as a thoroughfare to Delaware River towns, and commuters between Trenton, Philadelphia and New York. Therefore we feel this would be a valuable opportunity which will, in turn, begin to make East Amwell and the Ringoes Village a welcoming, sustainable locale. It is 2021 after all-and hybrid/electric vehicles are becoming more prevalent! 

  • The first steps in this process is applying for the appropriate grants and getting install quotes. The grants would cover a majority of the install. 

For now, read on about the viability of electric vehicles!
