AUSTERLITZ – The Town of Austerlitz announces the installation of a new electric vehicle charging station in the parking lot of the new Town Hall on State Route 203 in Spencertown.
The ChargePoint Level 2 charging station is being funded by a grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). Located just a few miles east of the Taconic State Parkway and a few miles west of from Route 22, the charging station is convenient to riders on the parkway as well as I-90 and Route 22.
There is no fee to use the station at this time. The Town of Austerlitz Climate Smart Committee is responsible for obtaining the grant funds and moving forward on other initiatives the town is taking to combat climate change at the local level. These initiatives include the potential installation of LED street lighting and education and awareness activities on how everyone can help reduce their carbon footprint.
All are welcome to visit the new charging station. It’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to all drivers with electric vehicles.
