Electric-Drive Vehicles: Moving Into the Future
NYPA has helped make New York State a pacesetter in electric-drive and clean transportation technologies. Working with our customers, we have helped place more than 1,250 electric and hybrid-electric vehicles into service. Together these vehicles have traveled more than 11 million miles. The clean transportation programs and partnerships we're helping to establish, help improve air quality and reduce dependence on foreign oil.
NYPA, along with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), is spearheading Governor Andrew Cuomo's Charge New York Initiative, announced in 2013. The goal is to create a statewide network of up to 3,000 public and workplace charging stations over the next five years and to put up to 40,000 plug-in vehicles on the road during that period.
