College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor has installed a plug in station for electric vehicles to charge up at no cost to the driver. The solar powered project started as a grant that was given to the university, and with the help of a local car dealership, turned into a much more extensive project. Students and faculty hope it will benefit not only their school but the entire community.
The charge up station is located by the first entrance to the school off of route 3.
Andrew joined the WVII ABC 7 and WFVX FOX 22 News team in June of 2012. Since a young child he always wanted to pursue a career in Broadcast Journalism, and is honored to start his journey in Eastern Maine. He enjoys nothing more than meeting the members of the community and sharing their stories with our viewers.
Raised in Houston, Texas, Andrew graduated from Suffolk University located in Boston, Massachusetts where he majored in Communications. Before moving up to the Pine Tree State, Andrew was a student reporter for The Morning Show on New England Cable News (NECN).
When not in the newsroom, Andrew enjoys volunteering at the Bangor Humane Society. You can see him there at least once a week interacting with many of the dogs. He also enjoys cooking, reading, watching his favorite movies, and going to the gym.
Make sure to say hi when you see him on the streets, and mention Finding Nemo (his favorite movie) if you want some brownie points!
