West Haven City Hall is getting its first charging kiosk for electric cars – New Haven Register


WEST HAVEN — A charging kiosk for electric cars is coming to City Hall, according to the city.

Student electricians from Eli Whitney Technical High School, who are taught by department head and master electrician Mike Siefker, are installing what will be West Haven’s “first charging kiosk for electric cars,” according to the city.

“The 240-volt charger was donated by Enfield manufacturer Control Module Inc. as part of a pilot program sponsored by the Greater New Haven Clean Cities Coalition Inc.,” the city said in a statement. Mayor Nancy R. Rossi “has agreed to have the charger installed in the City Hall parking lot for public use.”


After is it installed, electric car owners “can use the charger for free because it is connected to an existing solar array atop the adjacent, future West Haven Center for the Arts,” city grants writer Doug Colter said in the statement.

The city “will monitor the usage cost and may install a pay station if the usage exceeds what it earns from the rooftop solar photovoltaic system,” he said.

The work is “a cooperative effort between the West Haven Department of Public Works and the Hamden school’s electrician training program.”
