[ARCHIVED] Electrical Vehicle Charging Stations installed at three County Government locations


Goshen, N.Y. – Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus and Department of Public Works Commissioner Erik Denega have announced that electric vehicle (EV) charging stations have been installed at the Government Center in Goshen, Thomas Bull Park in Montgomery and at the Middletown Community Campus, located at 18 Seward Avenue.

Each location is equipped with a level two dual station. Initially, the stations will be available to residents 24 hours a day, free of charge. According to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), as many as three million electric vehicles (EVs) are expected to be on the road statewide by 2030.

“These charging stations will make it more convenient for Orange County residents to recharge their electric vehicles,” Neuhaus said. “It will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants and set an example for cleaner and greener transportation options.”

“I would like to thank our Buildings and Grounds staff, along with the County’s Planning Department, for assisting with this important project which will benefit our residents and the environment.”

The EV project was funded in part by the Climate Smart Communities (CSC) Grant Program, Title 15 of the Environmental Protection Fund, through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The CSC Grant program was established to provide grants to cities, towns, villages, and counties of the State of New York for eligible climate change mitigation, adaptation, and planning and assessment projects.
