With the help of SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education & Development Support), Wayne County obtained a grant from the PA Department of Environmental Protection to install a two-port charging station for electric vehicles at The Stourbridge Project, co-working space and business incubator, in Honesdale.
Located along the west end of the former 1928 school building that houses The Stourbridge Project at the County’s Park Street Complex in Honesdale, the station offers Level 2 Charging, which is capable of fully charging a vehicle in a matter of several hours.
To use the station, drivers can set up an account on the Charge Point Website or use the mobile app to pay at the “pump,” so to speak. Drivers pay 20 cents per kilowatt hour, and the website estimates it would cost about $2.64 to a two-hour charge.
The grant program was funded from the settlement of the Volkswagen emissions fraud case. To receive the $10,000 Driving PA Forward grant, the station had to be available to the public and listed on the Charge Point network.
