BALTIMORE--May 6, 2014: Connecticut state officials say they are leading the nation when it comes to developing ways to get more zero-emission vehicles on the roads. Since July of last year, the state has given over $175,000 to towns, schools and businesses to provide electric vehicle charging stations across the state. SemaConnect, Inc. announced today that they were chosen by the Town of Bethel, Connecticut to install electric vehicle charging stations in the town. The electric vehicle charging stations will offer residents and tourists an additional location to charge their electric vehicle.

"Connecticut really is a trailblazer when it come to the encouragement of electric vehicle adoption," said Mark Pastrone, VP of Business Development at SemaConnect. "With 50 of Connecticut's 169 communities already offering electric vehicle charging stations, we are pleased to be working with the Town of Bethel on offering additional charging stations and helping with the effort to encourage the use of electric vehicles."

SemaConnect's networked electric vehicle charging stations and web-based management software makes it easy for station owners to deploy at their properties. The stations are sophisticated networked Level II (240Volts, 30Amps) commercial grade and comes bundled with SemaCharge, a web-based management software that station owners can:
