On Monday (April 22), Saratoga Casino Hotel announced plans to begin work on installing electronic vehicle charging stations on its property.

Work is expected to begin next week to add five vehicle charging stations that will be available for use near the casino’s Jefferson Street entrance. There will be no fee for guests utilizing the charging stations and they are expected to be operational by mid-May.

The ChargePoint chargers will be fully compatible with most major electronic vehicles. Each of the units feature two ports for charging, allowing for up to 10 vehicles to utilize the station simultaneously. With over 1.5 annual guests, the casino expects a consistent year-round demand for these charging stations.

“As these vehicles become more common, our decision to include this station on property just made sense,” said Alex Tucker, general manager of Saratoga Casino Hotel. “We view this as another effort to become a more environmentally sustainable company, while also providing a beneficial amenity to our guests.”

Over the past two years, Saratoga Casino Hotel has made an increased effort to become more environmentally friendly across multiple facets of its business. An effort to place more visible recycling receptacles throughout the property resulted in a 20 per cent increase in overall recycling, with a subsequent 12-ton reduction in trash output.

Additionally, a massive project by the casino’s facilities department converted existing fluorescent lighting on the property to a low wattage LED lamp equivalent.

The transition converted nearly 550 lights to LED, and resulted in a reduction of over 335,000 Kwh. Last year, New York State Assembywoman Carrie Woerner delivered a proclamation to the casino, lauding their efforts and accomplishments related to environmental stewardship.
