The Town of Elizabethtown unveiled the first public-use Electrical Vehicle (EV) charging station within the Town’s limits during a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, March 11. 

“Being able to offer this service is a great boost for our Downtown,” Mayor Sylvia Campbell said in a press release. She also added that the EV charging stations are strategically located at the Cape Fear Farmers Market to make it more convenient for users to shop and dine while waiting for their vehicle to charge.  

According to CEO Chris Nelson with Helios Energy, the chargers are part of the latest generation of ChargePoint commercial charging stations compatible with all electric vehicles and are the first Energy Star certified chargers. 

The chargers were installed as part of an NCDEQ DC Fast grant and town match. The chargers are on a  dedicated pad next to the access road around the Farmers Market. The next closest public charging station is at the Four County Facility on Route 242 outside of the Town’s limits.
