ABB E-mobility fast EV chargers open for vehicles at Vermont’s first NEVI site

  • Featuring ABB E-mobility NEVI chargers, a ribbon-cutting event marked the opening of the first NEVI site in Vermont.
  • Federal Highway Administrator Shailen Bhatt celebrated the availability of convenient EV charging services for drivers traveling the I-91 corridor.
  • With nearly 40 NEVI projects underway, ABB E-mobility complies with Phase II of the Build America, Buy America rules, is J3400 (NACS) ready, and enables 97+% uptime.

Federal Highway Administrator Shailen Bhatt joined Vermont’s congressional delegation and state agency leaders to celebrate the opening of the first NEVI EV fast charging hub in Vermont, located in downtown Bradford. The site features four ABB E-mobility Terra 184 chargers, which are Build America, Buy America (BABA) compliant, and meet the NEVI technical standards, allowing drivers to charge quickly and get back on the road.

Located in downtown Bradford, residents, workers, and visitors can conveniently recharge their electric vehicles within walking distance of local shops and restaurants on Main Street. Located 1 mile from the highway and in the heart of Bradford, this site creates confidence in reliable charging availability while bringing new visitors into town to benefit small businesses. 

As one of the first states to deploy fast chargers under the NEVI program, Vermont and the Federal Highway Administration showed leadership and commitment to the economic benefits of electric transportation in community downtowns. ABB E-mobility shares this commitment, providing DC fast chargers to nearly 40 NEVI projects so far across 10 states and with multiple partners.
