Town of Tonawanda to purchase its first electric car

The Tonawanda Town Board voted to purchase its first electric car for use by its building and electrical inspector and also will install a dedicated charging station for the vehicle.

The 2018 Chevy Volt will be purchased for $29,987. It will replace a vehicle more than 11 years old, said Councilman William Conrad.

The purchase, along with a Solarize Tonawanda campaign, are part of a campaign to secure a competitive $150,000 New York State Energy Research and Development Agency grant.

The final workshop for residents interested in discounted solar installations will be held at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 8 in the Kenmore Community Center, 135 Wilber Ave.

Conrad said interest has been growing steadily since the town started the solar campaign. About 300 people attended six meetings, he said.
