The Town of Austerlitz proudly 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, NY. The Charge Point Level 2 charging station is being funded by a generous grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). Located just a few miles eastward from the Taconic State Parkway and a few miles westward from Route 22, the charging station is uniquely available to riders on both the parkway as well as I-90 and Route 22.
There is no fee for station usage at this time. The Town of Austerlitz Climate Smart Committee is responsible for obtaining the grant funds as well as 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.
