How are Livingston Charge Port stations mounted?


You have the option of mounting on free-standing poles, a wall, or even on the ceiling.




What payment methods are available for Livingston Charge Port stations?


Our payment kiosks allow for use of credit cards and employee or student RFID cards, as well as allowing for payment via mobile phone app.




How long do the stations remain active?


We utilize guidelines that have been set by New York State, which outline that once installed stations must remain active for five years.




How do you determine the best location for stations?


We work with our trusted engineers to elvaluate where the best place is at the site and work to find the ideal location for stations based on power availability. We work hard to find a place that works best for the property owner and the drivers while simultaneously keeping costs at a minimum.




Can I add more stations as demand in the EV market grows?


Yes! We are willing to add stations to an existing location as the market demand for electric vehicles grows. The demand for electric vehicles in NYS is expected to increase more than 18x to 850,000 EVs by 2025, and 2,000,000 by 2030. NYS's push to electric has allowed there to be great incentives and program options available to facilities who want to take advantage of this growing market, so we do our best to evaluate the demographics and growth in our program areas to set our clients up for success and an ability to be ready to meet this demand.

Anna Susol

Those experiences, friendships and memories are irreplaceable. The BTM and international guides are there not just for information, but are real people who care and become your friends.

Emily Lowry

Beyond the Map is one of the best travel experiences I have ever had, if not THE BEST EXPERIENCE I have ever had! I loved every minute of it. The local partners and BTM leaders made us feel safe, encouraged us to explore and step outside our comfort zones and facilitated a friendly environment for everyone to get to know each other. The coordination of the trip (food, travel, lodging, adventures) was flawless! I would recommend BTM for any trip you and your friends want to go on, or to any organization interested in planning a trip... especially if you are interested in "getting out there" and not just stopping at the common tourist spots everyone goes to. BTM plans a truly unique experience. I will forever remember and cherish my time in Costa Rica and the friendships I made while there. Thank you Beyond the Map, I'll definitely be back!!

Kylie WIlkinson

This Beyond the Map Costa Rica trip has been one for the books! It allowed me to learn so much about myself and getting out of my comfort zone. I got to experience everything with a wonderful group of students who ended up being a support system the whole trip as I was to them! Every moment of this trip has been imprinted in my mind and I wish I could still be there!
