Clean Cities Success Stories: Niagara Buffalo Medical Campus
A new, green initiative is underway in upstate New York, at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. More than 20 General Electric level II EV charging stations have been installed in parking garages and side streets for public use. The stations were partially funded by a federal grant through a consortium of Upstate New York Clean Cities Coalitions. Organizers hope the new stations will lay the groundwork for an EV corridor to nearby cities.
MARK MCGOVERN: “I need to stop somewhere and get a charge for the night; I’m going to stay in a hotel in Buffalo, I’m going to leave my car over at the medical campus overnight and charge my vehicle so I’m ready to go come the next morning.”
Future plans include an EV car sharing fleet for campus visitors and solar power for the charging stations - a solid EV effort for residents of New York state’s “queen city.”
