“Clean Transportation: the Adirondack ON-RAMP,” will focus on topics including EV infrastructure, public transportation and commercial vehicles, as well strategies and policies for making clean transportation more accessible for residents and communities in northern New York.

Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul will be the summit’s keynote speaker. She will speak about the North Country’s clean transportation efforts in relation to New York State’s goals, incentives and policies, including the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA).

The virtual event includes seven one- to two-hour sessions over five days: Tuesday, September 29 to Friday, October 2 with a closing session on Monday, October 5. The summit was originally scheduled as a two-day in-person event for April 2020, but was rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Good picture. Unfortunately, I don’t believe there are any fast (DC) chargers in the entire park. There are several at the Glens Falls northbound rest area. We need more chargers to promote green electric vehicles. We also need to ensure the State rebate continues (or increases!) as well as utility company discounts.
