WEST NYACK, N.Y.: On Thursday, October 17, 2019, Palisades Center will receive the 2019 Green Council Award in the Transportation Improvement Category from the Rockland Business Association (RBA) Green Council.

Palisades Center is the only facility that provides these charging stations in Clarkstown and Rockland County, and is one of the biggest in New York with the ability to charge twenty vehicles simultaneously.
“Palisades Center has always strived to work collaboratively with the community in which we reside to foster growth and prosperity,” said Darrin Houseman, General Manager of Palisades Center. “As the top tourism destination in Rockland County, we are thrilled to be partners with Tesla. We are grateful to be honored by RBA’s Green Council and look forward to continuing to adopt green principles within our facility.”
