A little rain didn't dampen the fun last weekend when Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services (PPCS) members and employees, and Dairyland Power Cooperative and Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce representatives gathered at Vino in the Valley to celebrate the installation of a CHARGE electric vehicle charging station.
PPCS members enjoyed food, wine tasting, and prize drawings. The Ellsworth Wisconsin Area Chamber of Commerce conducted the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
With this installation, PPCS is partnering with Vino in the Valley to encourage tourism in Pierce County by electric vehicle drivers.
PPCS is a founding member of CHARGE EV, LLC, whose mission is to build an EV charging network across the nation in rural cooperative territories.
CHARGE electric stations can be found through their website, charge.coop, or the Plug Share app for smartphones.
