I you drive an electric vehicle, you'll be happy to know that the city of Augusta has two new electric charging stations installed thanks in part to a $10,000 grant from Efficiency Maine, according to WABI-TV.

Both of the chargers are active. The first is located in the Dickman Street parking garage, and the other, outside City Center. As of right now there is no fee to use the charging stations however there is a payment system that is due to come online soon however the costs to charge a vehicle are expected to be minimal.

As of last year the city of Augusta has tapped into renewable electricity sources to supply 100% of its needs, that is a first for the State of Maine and fits into a larger sustainability plan for August going forward.
