DEEP: EVConnecticut - Charging



Connecticut encourages placement of EV chargers in homes, workplaces, and multi-modal transportation hubs. The ideal location for an EV charger is in a safe, well-lit location in close proximity to public areas such as grocery stores or malls.

Connecticut is also evaluating opportunities to support fuel cell electric vehicles and the expansion of the hydrogen refueling station infrastructure.
