In addition to emitting lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions, electric vehicles are extremely efficient. An electric motor converts 75-80 percent of the chemical energy from the batteries to power the wheels. An internal combustion engine converts only 20 percent of the energy stored in gasoline.
The Lake Placid Club Lodges is pleased to provide access to four Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations (referred to as J1772) to fuel energy efficient electric vehicles. The charging stations put out 6.6kW, and their use is free to owners and guests at the Lake Placid Club Lodges and for a modest charge to the public. They are part of the ChargePoint national system and can be used via the ChargePoint App. They can also be found on the Plug Share App.
