Electric vehicle charging stations open in Manchester

Two Manchester businesses — Zoey’s Double Hex Restaurant and the Northshire Bookstore  — have set up electric vehicle charging stations thanks to a partnership with Green Mountain Power.

“We are so pleased to see Vermonters embrace our efforts to build a comprehensive EV charging network,” said Chris Condon of GMP at an unveiling of the charging stations Wednesday morning.

Co-owners of Zoey’s Double Hex Restaurant, Guy Thomas and Bob Albert, are always looking for ways to serve their customers better while honoring the environment. “It is a huge asset that Green Mountain Power is making it possible to host the charging stations,” Albert said.

The charging station at Zoey’s Double Hex, 1614 Depot St., will have three dual port Level 2 stations that provide up to 24 miles of charge per hour. The charging station at Northshire Bookstore, 4869 Main St., will have an ABB fast charger that is capable of providing approximately 80 percent of a battery charge in 25 minutes when using the DC fast-charging option and that serves all electric vehicles (Tesla owners need an adapter), as well as a dual port Level 2 station.

GMP offers customers the option to pay as they go or sign up for various monthly charging memberships starting around $5.95 a month. Memberships are available for GMP customers at 1-877-494-3833 or, but anyone can pay by credit card at the charging station.
