Saugerties adding two electric vehicles in 2019

Town officials plan to introduce two electric vehicles to its municipal fleet in 2019, one for the police department and the other to the water and sewer department. The decision was spurred by rebate opportunities offered by the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA); due to a grant from the DEC last year, Saugerties’ electric car charging stations are free for users until October of 2019.
