Milford mandates EV charging stations in future build projects

Any future developments with 30 or more parking spaces will have to make 10 percent of those spots electric vehicle charging capable, thanks to a newly approved change to the city’s zoning regulations. The state legislature, in Public Act 22-25, mandated towns to have regulations for accommodating electric vehicles charging on projects where there are 30 or more parking spaces. According to the Alternative Fuels Data Center, Milford has seven locations available for electric vehicle charging. Some locations include the Connecticut Post Mall, which has six public EV chargers and 14 Tesla Superchargers; Hilton Garden Inn Milford has four public EV chargers. On city-owned property, there are six — two at the public library, two at Parsons Government Center and two at the train station. Two more chargers should be coming online in the coming months, with the Woodruff Family YMCA installing them in its parking lot.
