WARREN, NJ - Warren Township Mayor Michael “Mick” Marion and Deputy Mayor George Lazo, along with Warren Township Administrator Mark Krane, Department of Public Works (DPW) Superintendent Doug Buro, and DPW Assistant Superintendent Mike Lovette, unveiled Warren Township’s new electric car charging station on Wednesday.
Looking towards the future and in order to promote environmental responsibility, the Township Committee, with the support of the Green Team, has encouraged the installation of an electric car charger at the Municipal Complex.
“I wish to extend my appreciation to Doug Buro and the Public Works Department for supervising the installation of this station and to Laura Mandell and the Green Team for advocating the project,” Marion said.
Warren Township purchased a Level II EV charging station at a cost of $3,284. However, most of the cost of the installation of the charging station was provided to the Township with a $10,000 Sustainable Jersey Grant and a $6,000 “It Pays to Plug In” grant from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
In addition to this charging station, located in the side parking lot of the Warren Municipal Complex on Mountain Boulevard, the Warren Township Committee has agreed to work with Somerset County Public Works Department to add an additional charging station near the library.
“I hope that by ensuring that the residents of Warren have access to a car charging station, it will encourage the utilization of energy efficient cars and promote environmental responsibility in our community,” said Marion.
