The Environmental Commission is pursuing the install of a DCFC charging station adjacent to the municipal building. East Amwell is a destination for day trippers to our wineries and farms, and for recreational enthusiasts, as well as a thoroughfare to Delaware River towns, and commuters between Trenton, Philadelphia and New York. Therefore, we feel this would be a valuable opportunity which will in turn begin to make East Amwell and the Ringoes Village a welcoming, sustainable locale. It is 2021 after all-and hybrid/electric vehicles are becoming more prevalent! 

  • East Amwell have applied for - and WON - the $75,000 NJ BPU grant and are one step (of many) closer to having a DCFC charger!
