If we build it, they will come.
We agree with the Globe’s editorial: Faster investments now in EV charging stations on the consumer, commercial, and municipal levels would spur confidence in this proven technology and help ensure that our state can meet its ambitious climate goals.
Our electrical workforce is the key to hastening this infrastructure development. We’ve installed hundreds of EV chargers across residential and commercial properties, and we are constantly adapting our training as this technology advances. Over the next five years, we will add hundreds of new skilled electricians to both install and maintain EV charging stations.
