SCOTIA — Members of the Albany Capital District EV Drivers are able to move mountains.
The group prides itself on driving electric vehicles (EV) and on Sunday several members banded together to move a small mountain of snow in front of three fueling stations in the Village of Scotia at 138 Mohawk Ave.
The group was alerted by a local EV Uber driver who got stuck attempting to charge his vehicle Saturday after Thursday’s winter Storm Gail dumped as much as 32 inches on the Capital Region.
The parking lot is adjacent to the Scotia Fire Department and shared with City View Church. It was cleared of the snowfall with the exception of the fueling stations.
Member Michael Kamm sent out an email to the members asking for help to clear the area and his call to arms was answered by several members arriving with shovels in their own electric vehicles.
With seven shovels in hand, the six parking spaces were cleared and made available for the public to utilize the DC fast charger and pair of LC chargers within 45 minutes.
