A former snowboard store is now a sustainable energy retail store that offers the state’s first electric vehicle charging station.
Green Mountain Energy Vermont, located on Route 100 in South Londonderry, provides 220 volts an hour and can charge a car in one to four hours.
The store opened its doors Thursday, and was hailed as an important step in keeping up Vermont’s name as a leader in energy efficiency initiatives. In keeping with that, the dignitaries including state Rep. Oliver Olsen, of Jamaica, and Gov. Peter Shumlin – cut an electrical cord instead of a ribbon to toast the opening.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports that the store offers installation of sustainable energy systems including thermal, wind and photovoltaic solar.
