Crossgates and Livingston Energy Partner to Install 20 EV Charging Stations for Guests

Livingston Energy Group announced plans to install 20 charging stations at Crossgates in Albany.

“Each year, we welcome millions of shoppers to Crossgates, and each year more and more of them arrive in electric vehicles,” said Crossgates General Manager J. Michael Gately. “We are eager to meet the needs of EV drivers and provide them with the opportunity to charge their vehicles while shopping, dining, relaxing at the spa or watching a movie. What’s more, Crossgates has always been committed to environmental responsibility. Installing electric vehicle car charging stations is the next thing we can do to honor that commitment.”

“The number of electric vehicles is growing across upstate NY and partnerships like this with Livingston and Crossgates will help increase that growth, and get us close to a more sustainable future,” said Laurie Poltynski, Regional Executive for National Grid in Eastern New York. “This partnership with Livingston is part of National Grid’s electric vehicle charger program that is aimed at supporting New York State’s energy goal’s by adding 16,000 new electric vehicle plugs in National Grid’s upstate New York region by 2025.”

“Crossgates is setting a great example as a community leader in environmental responsibility.” said Jason Zarillo from Livingston Energy Group. “When driving an electric car, you don’t stop for gas anymore, you simply top off your battery as you go. A destination like Crossgates is a perfect place for drivers to spend some time while charging up.”

The project is expected to break ground this month and be ready for shoppers during Q1 of 2021. A formal ribbon cutting ceremony will be held to mark the occasion.
