The power is not free to use. Electric vehicle drivers have to use what's called Charge Point. It's an app and card used to start a charge and record the amount of the charging session.
Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich, who dressed in green and talking about 'going green,' says they are the only public electric vehicle charging stations in Greece and all of northwestern Monroe County.
"We have four different charing points at town hall and we hope that people are appreciate that and utilize it. We are trying to be supportive of clean energy where we can. If you have an electric vehicle you may search for a charge point and now people know that here at Greece Town Hall 24/7 they can have access to a charging point," Reilich said.
Charge NY says electric vehicles cost about 50-70% less to operate per mile than gasoline-powered vehicles.
