MIDDLESEX, Vt. – Top state officials and the head of the state’s largest electric utility are going to be inaugurating a car charging station in Middlesex that will be part of a corridor of such stations between Boston and Montreal.

U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, Gov. Peter Shumlin and Green Mountain Power CEO Mary Powell will be at the Red Hen Bakery in Middlesex on Monday for the event.

The Middlesex station helps fulfill Vermont’s commitment to help build an “EV Corridor” of electric charging stations between Boston and Montreal.

Access to a full network of charging stations is critical since many electric-only vehicles have a short range.

Currently there are 27 charging stations in Vermont with another 15 planned.
