Event Report

The Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition, in partnership with the Town of Matthews, hosted a ribbon cutting event for the new DC Fast Charger in Matthews, NC. Representative Bill Brawley, Mayor Jim Taylor, and Town Manager Hazen Blodgett were all in attendance. Representative Brawley and Mayor Taylor spoke about Matthews setting a precedence for chargers in the Greater Charlotte Region and how the charger would encourage more EVs and chargers. BMW and Nissan brought vehicles to display and show how the charger worked. It was a great event!
