ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATIONS
Would your house of worship like an EV charging station?
Arkansas Interfaith Power & Light intends to apply for funding to provide Electrical Vehicle (EV) charging stations at interested houses of worship throughout Arkansas.
If your house of worship is interested in installing an EV charging station in your parking lot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Inviting members and guests to “get a charge at church” offers an opportunity to increase membership and attendance.
