Recharge your batteries in Door County

Money from a settlement with Volkswagen could add more electric vehicle charging stations to Door and Kewaunee counties.  Wisconsin is expected to receive just over $67-million from the VW Diesel Emission Environmental Mitigation Trust.  Now the state is looking for public input on plans to make $10-million of that available for additional electrical charging stations. There are currently 18 charging locations in Door County. Jon Jarosh, with Destination Door County, says such new funds would go for further expansion and serve as one more selling point to visitors.

 


The VW Diesel Environmental Mitigation Trust settled claims after the automaker admitted violating the Clean Air Act with some diesel models.  Wisconsin's Department of Transportation is looking for public comment on using trust fund money for electric vehicle charging stations.  The VW Diesel Environmental Mitigation Trust settled claims after the automaker admitted violating the Clean Air Act with some diesel models.  Wisconsin's Department of Transportation is looking for public comment on using trust fund money for electric vehicle charging stations.  You can share your thoughts by logging on to vwsettlement@wisconsin.gov.
