The City of Malden is pleased to announce the installation of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations. In total the City will install 22 EV stations across five city wide locations. Working with National Grid, Public Facilities Director Eric Rubin and the City of Malden Energy Efficiency Commission were able to obtain significant incentives to install multiple charging stations throughout the City. The EV charging stations will provide residents and visitors who drive an electric vehicle with the assurance that they have multiple locations around the City to charge their batteries.
Locations of charging stations are as follows:
- Early Learning Center, 257 Mountain Avenue
- DPW, 356 Commercial Street
- Malden High School, 77 Salem Street
- Jackson Street Garage, 180 Exchange Street
- CBD Garage, 170 Centre Street
Completing the installation of the EV charging stations is one step the City is taking to encourage people to purchase electric vehicles. This initiative will help in the effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in and around the city of Malden. The charging stations will be networked to enable potential users to find the locations via an app from their smartphone. This will help to gain wider adoption of electric vehicles to residents and visitors of Malden. Other strategies to help with this imitative include electrifying municipal vehicle fleets. The City currently operates electric vehicles in our Parking Department.
