Electric Vehicle Charging Stations: Bringing communities 21st century transportation benefits.

NYPA offers electric vehicle charging station implementation and finance services to local and state government agencies. Many agencies have already utilized NYPA services to install EV charging stations for public charging, workplace charging for their employees or for those travelling long distances who need additional charging to complete their trip.

Municipalities can currently receive significant incentives from the NYS DEC to install public charging stations. By installing electric vehicle charging stations, municipalities are able to attract residents and visitors to their downtown commercial district, while improving local air quality and reducing greenhouse gases. Municipalities can also team with NYPA to add electric vehicle charging stations to support their municipal fleet vehicles.

Interested municipalities can register and submit their information: NYPA EV Charging Station Interest Form
