Where can I charge my electric car while dining on pasta primavera? At Nauna’s Bella Casa in Montclair.
Owner Tom Moloughney installed two charging stations (expected to be ready for use within a week) as well as bike racks, donated by Bike Walk Montclair. At an event today at Nauna’s, the group Environment New Jersey announced the release of their report, “Charging Forward: The Emergence of Electric Vehicles and Their Role in Reducing Oil Consumption.” Moloughney says the announcement was scheduled for Princeton, but when the group heard he heard he was installing the stations, they changed their venue to Nauna’s. A small crowd gathered, including a few drivers who brought their electric cars.
Attending the event today were (former) Mayor Jerry Fried and Montclair’s environmental guru Gray Russell.
Nauna’s stations join Montclair’s other charging stations, including those located in the Upper Montclair plaza parking lot.
