DEP Celebrates 1,000 Electric Vehicle Chargers Installed Statewide with 'Driving PA Forward' Funding

Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Patrick McDonnell announced that 1,000 Level 2 electric vehicle chargers have been installed statewide with funding from the DEP Driving PA Forward program. McDonnell celebrated the milestone at Neighbors & Smith retail center in Camp Hill, Cumberland County today, which installed four chargers with Driving PA Forward funding.

"Each one of these chargers adds another option for Pennsylvania's electric vehicle drivers, and more electric vehicles on the road means less tailpipe pollution and healthier air quality in our communities," said McDonnell. "It also helps Pennsylvania address the pressing challenge of climate change."

While charging his car in the parking lot, Secretary McDonnell visited One Good Woman coffee/tea shop to talk with Neighbors & Smith property manager David Hutton and shop owner Michele Koch about the benefits of supporting customers' and employees' electric vehicle use.
