VICTOR, N.Y. (WROC-TV) – A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in the Village of Victor to celebrate the installation of its first electric vehicle (EV) charging station on Friday.

The charging station was installed in the parking lot adjacent to the Village Office Building at 60 East Main Street in Victor with the support of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority in an effort to advance Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s ambitious goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030 by encouraging the growth of electric vehicle use.

The ceremony began with public remarks from Mayor Gary Hadden and Greater Rochester Clean Cities Coordinator, David Keefe before the ribbon-cutting.
