Richmond’s First EV Charger Installed November 4th, 2022!

On August 2nd, 2022, ComEd joined the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus (MMC) to announce the winners of grants to fund community infrastructure projects that promote public safety and access to clean transportation. As part of the annual Powering Safe Communities program, ComEd and MMC have awarded 21 community grants totaling $171,000 to help launch community-driven projects across the region, from innovative pedestrian safety technology to clean transportation projects that support the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and are designed to reduce carbon emissions and improve community resiliency.

Through this grant program, the Village of Richmond has been able to install our very first EV charger in the municipal parking lot off of W Broadway in downtown earlier this November! Thank you to ComEd and the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus for choosing the Village of Richmond for this project!
