An idling car wastes up to .5 gallon per hour; a medium-duty truck may waste even more.
While individual episodes may be small, the cumulative impacts of idling are large.
For everyday drivers, the best way to reduce idling is to simply turn the key when stopped for 10 seconds or more, except in traffic.
Tailpipe emissions contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone, which can damage lungs, especially for children.
Fresh water is a finite resource, meaning that we have a limited amount to use again and again. Efficient water use will save money, help protect the environment and ensure future water supplies. Take steps each day to save water and protect the environment!
On August 3rd, 2022, Hillsborough Township Mayor Shawn Lipani cut the ribbon on a new electric vehicle (EV) charging station. Located at the Municipal Complex, the charging station was installed thanks to the “It Pay$ to Plug In Electric Vehicle Charging Grants Program” grant that was awarded to the township in the amount of $8,000. The two port Level 2 EV charging station by ChargePoint is located at the front (main) parking lot at the Municipal Complex that is marked exclusively for that purpose.
The rate for charging electric vehicles at the Municipal Building is $1.50 per hour for the first three hours with no fee for parking. After 3 hours, the charge will be $1.50 per hour for charging and a $5 fee for parking.
