Electric Vehicle Charging Station

Electric Vehicle Charging Station

Co-op Hosts Electric Vehicle Charging Station

The Cooperative is hosting Delhi’s first public electric vehicle (EV) charging station at our headquarters at 39 Elm Street. The EV charging station was purchased and installed by Transition Catskills, which operates under the umbrella of The M-Ark Project Inc. Additional funds were provided by the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the O’Connor Foundation. The goals of Transition Catskills include strengthening the local economy, improving living standards, and building community resilience as we face a future of unstable energy supplies and a changing climate. The charging station is free and open to the public effective immediately, and electricity to charge up vehicles will be paid for by Transition Catskills. Although there is no cost to charge a vehicle, electric vehicle owners will be required to present an EV network card to the EV charging station to activate it for use.
