UPDATE Westport will soon have two additional advanced electric vehicle (EV) charging stations for public use.
The new locations are at the rear of 185 Main St., behind TD BankNorth, and in the parking lot at 1460 Post Road East, the shopping center anchored by Pier One.
Building Official Steve Smith, who has been spearheading the installation of EV charging stations in Westport, said both stations will open “within a couple of months.” Charging stations now exist at the Metro-North Westport station and at the Tri-Town Teachers Federal Credit Union on Jesup Road.
The new stations will use what is known as level 3 technology, also called “DC Fast Charge,” requiring only 15 minutes to charge 80 percent of the electric car battery capacity, according to Maziar Dalaeli, founder of New York-based IPPsolar LLC.
