Introducing Rustic Village’s Electric Vehicle Charging Station. Tri City Rentals officially unveiled Rustic Village's brand new EV charging station. Not only is this a tremendous benefit to Rustic Village residents and the public, but a step forward in energy conservation efforts.

Tri City Rentals, a premier apartment community owner and management company in New York State, announced the completed installation of its Rustic Village Apartments electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and unveiled the stations for public use. Charging station demonstrations were conducted through partnership with local Doan Chevrolet and Cortese Ford of Rochester, which provided electric motorized vehicles.

With so few electric vehicle charging stations currently available, this is not only a tremendous benefit for our residents and the public, but more importantly another step forward in New York State’s energy conservation efforts,” said Julie Massry Knox, Director of Marketing and Leasing at Tri City Rentals. “Rustic Village Apartments is a draw for those looking for an apartment home with a great location, wonderful amenities and professional staff and the new electric vehicle charging station will only further enhance the experience of living here.”


Plugin Stations Online installed the Rustic Village EV charging stations, which is now one of a few locations in Rochester to have one available. Through a federal and state grant program and a joint effort between the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), EV charging stations will be installed at 325 new locations statewide. The Rustic Village Apartments station contributes to the larger statewide network and brings a new EV charging station to the Rochester region.


“The need for electric vehicle charging stations is increasing as we see the automobile industry reshaping the way we think about our vehicles,” said John Doran, Owner for Plugin Stations Online. “This NYSERDA program reflects the environmentally conscious effort New York State is undertaking and thanks to forward thinking companies like Tri City Rentals, we’re going to see more charging stations installed as this industry trend progresses.”


EV charging stations like the one installed at Rustic Village Apartments provide an environmentally friendly fuel alternative to gas and diesel powered vehicles. The Rustic Village Evr-Green Dual Port Level 2 Charging Station is part of the ChargePoint network and features two modules, which can charge two vehicles simultaneously. To enhance safety and eliminate energy theft, drivers access and energize vehicles at the station using a ChargePass™ Card or contactless credit card.


“Our charging station being part of the ChargePoint network allows for mobile device application use, making it user-friendly and more accessible for the public to use and locate,” said Tim Owens, General Manager at Tri City Rentals. “Using a mobile app, drivers can find a charging station nearby or at a specific address, get turn-by-turn directions to the nearest station and check availability.”
