GLENS FALLS NY — Two electric vehicle charging stations were installed by ChargePoint through a partnership between NYSERDA, ChargePoint and National Grid at the Glens Falls Hospital as part of the statewide Charge NY initiative. Find out more about the futuristic development right here in Glens Falls NY!
Glens Falls Hospital is ahead of the game now that ChargePoint has installed two electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot. A bold new future awaits for our transportation technology as the signs of changing times emerge right here in our home town!
ChargePoint, NYSERDA, and National Grid are partnering together for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Charge NY program. This program ambitiously anticipates a $50 million investment over five years to make 3,000 public and workplace charging stations by 2018. The state’s making a big effort to create an infrastructure of electric vehicle charging stations, and electric vehicle use has tripled just within this past year.
Electric vehicles are promising candidates for the future of transportation. The Glens Falls Hospital will fund the cost of energy consumed by each charge on their campus, encouraging and facilitating users of the new technology. To date, the partnership has installed 25 stations across upstate New York.
The two electric vehicle charging stations are on 29 Mohican Street and 126 South Street; both are areas available to the public at any time. Charging is easy — just tap your ChargePoint card on the contact pad and the station unlocks and is ready to charge. Don’t worry, there’s no cost involved with charging at either station.
This development will help to create a cleaner and healthier environment, and bring NY into the future of transportation. With Charge NY, our state can look forward to a gentle transition to less emissions.
