Fundraising for Fast Charge Monadnock

Published: 10/29/2019 3:28:53 PM

 

Fast Charge Monadnock (FCM), an initiative of the Monadnock Energy Hub to bring fast charging for fully electric vehicles to the region, completed The Local Crowd Monadnock crowdfunding campaign on Oct. 13.

The fundraising goal of $10,000 was exceeded and donations are still being accepted.

Fast Charge Monadnock partnered with the Monadnock Food Co-op to raise funds for the first site to install an EV fast-charging station because of its location in downtown Keene and the Co-op’s commitment to sustainability. The Monadnock Energy Hub and the Co-op have worked together to organize two Drive Electric events this year.

Installing EV Fast chargers means fully electric cars can charge in 20 to 40 minutes rather than four to six hours using existing local public chargers. In addition to attracting EV tourists, this initiative promotes the purchase of EVs in the region. .
