UTICA, NY – In case you didn’t know it, this is National Drive Electric week.

To celebrate, electric car enthusiasts gathered at Utica City Hall Saturday to promote the charging station there.

The charging station is relatively new and can charge 2 cars at a time.

It was installed last November as part of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s “Charge New York” initiative.

A recent study by Energetics, an energy management consulting firm, indicated that Utica was one of 5 locations in the Mohawk Valley that would benefit from a charging station.

“Most people will charge at home because it’s much easier,” says Energetics’ Victoria McGarril.

“These public charging stations are vital, however, to create this network where people can go about their normal day and get a few extra miles as they’re running errands.”

McGarril says as more people buy electric cars, the demand for charging stations will rise.

There are currently 3 charging stations located in Utica.
