Middletown’s first open access electric vehicle charging stations

The New York Power Authority (NYPA) and the Department of State recently installed the first open-access electric vehicle (EV) fast chargers in Downtown Middletown in the Mid-Hudson Region of New York (DOS). The two-charger hub increases the number of charging locations in the Hudson Valley as part of NYPA’s EVolve NY high-speed charging network effort.

Middletown is one of six cities that are a part of the State’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI), which aims to increase the accessibility of EV driving for locals and out-of-state visitors. NYPA and DOS are working together on the DRIve EV Downtown project.

In the South Street parking lot, across from the Paramount Theatre, is where you’ll find the new charging station. The chargers are a component of the EVolveNY fast-charging network, which aims to make it simple to own and operate an electric vehicle (EV) in New York State and lessen the state’s transportation sector’s carbon impact. On the EVolve NY network, more than 100 fast chargers are currently active throughout New York State.

“New Yorkers are driving electric and seeing the advantages of a cleaner and more effective transportation system because to NYPA’s fast, reasonably priced, and dependable charging network,” stated NYPA Interim President and CEO Justin E. Driscoll. For people who don’t have access to a charging station at home or who are traveling, this hub in the CBD is a terrific place to park, charge, and take in the city.
