EV charging stations at the Orange County Government Center in Goshen
GOSHEN – Electric motor vehicle charging stations have been installed at three Orange County Government locations – 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 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,” County Executive Stteven Neuhaus said. “It will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants and set an example for cleaner and greener transportation options.” The EV project was funded in part by the Climate Smart Communities (CSC) Grant Program in the Environmental Protection Fund, through the State Department of Environmental Conservation.
The CSC Grant program was established to provide grants to cities, towns, villages, and counties in New York for eligible climate change mitigation, adaptation, and planning and assessment projects.
