Harrisburg's new green initiative: Vehicle charging stations in City Island garage

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Harrisburg is showcasing its new Green Initiative on Earth Day 2021.

Officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for eight new vehicle charging stations in the City Island garage.

This comes as the city starts converting its fleet to plug-in electric vehicles.

“You’re going to see these out on the streets. They’re going to be out patrolling for illegal dumping, working for communites and neighborhood cleanups … and since the radius of Harrisburg is not long it’s a perfect use for an electric vehicle,” Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse said.

Papenfuse says the city is planning to convert other department’s vehicles over the next few years.
