About 2nd Drive: Taunton Municipal Lighting Plant (TMLP) and Middleborough Gas and Electric Department (MGED) are working cooperatively with their energy services partner, Energy New England (ENE), to promote the purchase of pre-owned Electric Vehicles (EVs) in the towns they serve. Used cars now include a growing supply of battery or plug-in hybrid cars, often with low mileage after a short-term lease. For a limited time, these neighboring town utilities are able to take advantage of matching funds through the Demonstration of Energy and Efficiency Developments (DEED) program grant from the American Public Power Association (APPA).
