Electric car owners will soon not have to worry about stealing electricity for their vehicles in Ellison Bay. During its Wednesday board meeting, the Town of Liberty Grove approved funds to be used from their 2019 technology budget to install a new car charging station at the Ellison Bay Women’s Club building. The town is already aware some people know where they can hook up their vehicles based on the building’s electric bill during the summer months. Town chairperson John Lowry says it is a good thing to add as more cars are trending towards electricity as a power source.
The Town of Liberty Grove already has one electric car charging station located near the Death’s Door Maritime Museum in Gills Rock. Lowry hopes the new station can be installed later this year.
