Our Goal

We’re working to make New York even better for electric vehicles by building a network of fast, affordable, and reliable public charging stations. We’re adding chargers in key places along major highways and at the airports, investing up to $250 million through 2025 to improve the infrastructure and raise awareness of the benefits of driving electric.

Fast Means Fast

• 15-30 minute EV charging • Available 24/7 • Pull up & plug in – anytime – the network can accommodate the fastest-charging vehicles of today and the near-future

Charging Overview:

200 chargers, 50 locations by the end of 2021 = EVolve NY will form a robust network that will enable drivers to travel all of New York State with confidence:
  • Installed at intervals of 50 miles, on average
  • Easy on/off access, from highway exits and in key urban hubs
  • Four chargers per location, on average
  • Located at shopping plazas, convenience stores, and supermarkets, with safe access to food, restrooms, and shelter

Transparent, affordable pricing:

Starting at $0.35 per kWh of electricity delivered to the car. Most sessions cost below $30.

See FAQs for a more detailed example of charging costs.


24/7 support for payment and charging issues

  • Call center (see map for specific phone numbers by location) will help drivers troubleshoot issues while at a charging site.
  • Peace of mind and reliability are EVolve NY’s top  priorities — if users cannot initiate their charge themselves, the help line will remotely begin the session.

We want to hear from you — customer satisfaction is our highest priority. If you have questions, comments, or non-urgent issues, we will address them. Reach out to us at EVolveNY@nypa.gov.

As a participant in New York’s Make-Ready Program Order, EVolve NY provides timely public notice of each site that we identify for commercial development that will require Make-Ready Program funds. Accordingly, other charging station owners can inquire about the details of the potential site locations identified by NYPA (as indicated by the grey icons in the above Google Map on this web page) for commercial development. EVolve NY has created a dedicated email address to field such questions, available at: MakeReadyInquiry@nypa.gov.
