NORWICH, Vt. (AP) — Add King Arthur Flour in Norwich to the growing list of Vermont locations where owners of electric-powered vehicles can get a charge.

The Norwich campus where the iconic flour miller has its bakery, school, cafe and store now features a dual part charging station to serve the growing numbers of electric powered vehicles in Vermont.

The charging station — built in cooperation with and funding from Green Mountain Power — is paired with a nearly 10-kilowatt solar power array, meaning that cars charging at the station will be running on energy from the sun.

There were 282 electric vehicles registered in Vermont as of July 1, up from 88 a year earlier.
