The Electric Vehicle Association is praising the Electric City, Schenectady, for going even more electric.

The city is being named the Electric Vehicle Association’s “EV City of the Year” for 2022.

Mayor Gary McCarthy accepted the award virtually, after it was presented at the organization’s annual meeting.

Schenectady partnered with the Capital District EV Drivers Group, Schenectady Greenmarket, and Livingston Energy Group last year to host the state’s Capital District Drive Electric Week and Sustainability Fair.

The mayor’s office says more people registered to take part in Schenectady’s event than any other that took part in the national initiative.
