Durham is set to install a new charging station for electric cars.

Town officials say the dual-port station will be installed at the Pettee Brook parking lot, as part of a repaving project that’s set to begin this week.

According to Durham officials, the charging station is being funded by a $5,000 state grant. They say the University of New Hampshire will also contribute toward the costs.

There are 44 charging stations for electric vehicles in New Hampshire, according to data from the U.S. Department of Energy. This would be the second such station in Durham.
