Electric car owners can now plug in their vehicles at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC), thanks to the installation of new charging stations.
There are currently 21 charging stations in downtown Buffalo. But initially, these taxpayer-funded facilities will have very few takers.
Barry Carr, with the Department of Energy, which helped fund the project, concedes that at the moment, there’s a lack of demand for those facilities. He says federal and state government want to begin building infrastructure, should electric vehicles begin to sell.
