SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Price Chopper has opened a three-car electric vehicle charging station at its Balltown Road store in the town of Niskayuna, N.Y.

The retailer plans to open four more EV stations in the near future in Latham, Slingerlands, Clifton Park and Wilton.

The General Electric “WattStation," which is free to use, was funded in part with a $46,000 incentive from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.

The Niskayuna station is “part of an effort by the company to provide a convenience for those with electric cars and a larger effort by the state to encourage electric car adoption,” Price Chopper wrote in a Facebook post.
