Sherry Horowitz: Electrifying Croton

Dear Crotonites, sherry2017

Good news for those of you with electric vehicles, and for those of you who are considering purchasing one!

The Village has installed two electric vehicle charging stations at the Municipal Building, and they are up and running!  Each charging station is able to charge two cars at once. One charging station is reserved for the use of municipal vehicles, and is designated as such. The other is a public charging station, and is available to all other owners of electric vehicles.

Any resident interested in using the charging station should first download the ChargePoint mobile app, which is used to pay for the charge. If you do decide to charge your vehicle at the Municipal Building, you should park in one of the two public spaces and follow the instructions on the charging station screen. The price is 22 cents perKWh, with a 4 hour time limit.

The Department of Public Works is working on the installation of an additional charging station located at Lot F in the Croton-Harmon train station parking lot. This charging station will also be capable of charging two vehicles at once, and will be available for commuter use.  We will keep you posted on the exact location for this charging station when it is completely functional!

The Mayor and the Village Board are delighted to bring this service to Croton residents. Many people worked on this initiative, including Lindsay Audin, Chair of the Village Sustainability Committee, who applied for the New York State Department of Conservation grant which paid for 2/3 of the purchase and installation of the chargers. This is just one of many environmental initiatives the Village is pursuing to protect and preserve our community and our planet!

Respectfully, Sherry Horowitz, Trustee, Croton Village Board
