JOHNSON — Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC) is now offering a $250 bill credit to members who purchase a Level II electric vehicle charger.
As part of the credit, members will be asked to refrain from charging their cars from 5-9 p.m. on weekdays, when demand for electricity typically peaks and electricity is generated from dirtier and more expensive sources.
The incentive will apply to chargers on a VEC-approved list.
The Level II chargers — which charge electric vehicles roughly four times as fast as standard 120-Volt wall outlet charging — range in price from about $500 to $900 before the VEC incentive.
