NEW PALTZ – SUNY New Paltz has installed
six electric vehicle charging stations for use by students, faculty, and
The new devices are seen as making the campus more convenient for members
of the campus community to choose environmentally-friendly modes of transportation
for their commute to the college.
“We hope that making these new charging stations available will
encourage faculty and staff in particular to consider making their next
car purchase an electric vehicle,” said Lisa Mitten, sustainability
coordinator at the college.
The new charging stations are located in the Route 32 and Elting Gym parking
lots and marked with bright green painted lines.
Electric vehicle charging will cost $1 per hour for the first four hours,
then $5 per hour thereafter.
A majority of the funding for the charging stations was secured through
the Charge NY program, a statewide initiative.
