Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) October 21, 2013
In August of 2013, the Town of Maynard utilized state grant funding to install its first electric car charger for public use. This project was made possible through Maynard’s participation in the Massachusetts Green Communities Program. As a member of this program, Maynard has committed itself to reducing municipal energy consumption by 20%. Guardian Energy Management Solutions assisted the Town of Maynard in the selection and installation of the new electric car charging station.
“I was trying to create a milestone that other Green Communities would follow. Together, we can reduce our carbon footprint, and hopefully one day we will create a roadmap listing all of the public electric car chargers within Massachusetts,” said Greg Lefter, Town Facility Director and project spearhead.
Guardian Energy Director Chip Goudreau stated in response, “Guardian enjoys pioneering projects like this one. Our clients are the people that are willing to go the extra mile to improve inefficiency, not only to save money but because it’s the right thing to do for our planet and for each other.”
The charger is located across from Veteran’s Memorial Park (12 Summer Street), and is free to use in an effort to motivate community members to rely less on gas. It is a product of AeroVironment, Inc. a leading manufacturer of energy efficiency products. Guardian is a certified installer of AeroVironment’s Electric Vehicle Solutions in Massachusetts.
