Concrete has been poured for the two High-Amp Level 2 (HAL2) charging stations that are being installed in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The stations are located at two parking spaces at a small park next to the Henlopen Condominiums near the north end of the boardwalk.

These are part of the “Charging Up Delaware” program, a partnership with the University of Delaware and the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) to place EV charging stations in Delaware at 50 mile intervals to enable en-route and destination charging throughout the entire state.

The triangular-shaped park sometimes referred to as Mariner’s Park but labeled Surfside Park on the map, has metered parking during the vacation season.

These stations were first proposed on May 5, 2014, when Professor Willett Kempton of the University of Delaware made a presentation to the city commissioners. The HAL2 EVSEs with J-1772 connectors are manufactured by Milbank and can deliver up to 75 Amps of AC power.

The funding is provided by an $80,000 state grant. Charging stations in the Charging Up Delaware program are also installed at the Delaware Welcome Center in Newark and the Ferry Terminal in Lewes.
