Westport, Conn. has a new solar-powered EV charging station.
Elektron Solar, of Westport, and New Fairfield-based Sun Electric have installed two electric vehicle charging stations at a Post Road East commercial building that draw energy from 109 solar panels on the roof. The 26 kW installation was part of a renovation of the 22,560-square-foot building owned by Frisa I LLC.
“Not only is the electric vehicle/solar combination great for the environment and the local community, it’s smart business, it helps control our energy costs and makes the building a more attractive location for employees and tenants,” David Friezo, a Westport resident and managing member of Frisa I told the Westport News.
