Now, Roosevelt Island is your personal access point. Joining ChargePoint will; provide you with access to their 45,000 and more charging stations, the ability to track your gasoline savings and green footprint, review your charging sessions and more.
The charging stations, located on the fourth floor of Motorgate, provides four spaces for electric vehicle owners to connect and charge their car. Roosevelt Island is a living example of what a small community with alternative transportation resources looks like. Collaborating with ChargePoint, allows us to bring the call of action of being environmentally conscious and bringing awareness to a larger demographic on the island.
