More than Visionary, More than Revolutionary, its EVolutionary - Be Part of the EV EVolution

Through EVolve NY, NYPA has committed up to $250 million through 2025 - and will partner with the private sector and other key stakeholders on initiatives that address key infrastructure and market gaps to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles (EV’s) throughout the state.

This commitment complements current efforts and investments to accelerate progress towards New York State’s emissions goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40% by 2030, and helps accelerate the Governor's Charge NY 2.0 program to launch 10,000 EV charging stations by 2021.

The initial phase of funding directs $40 million into three new initiatives through the end of 2019: Interstate Fast Chargers (DCFC), Airport Charging Hubs, EV Model Communities.

Interstate Fast Chargers: DC (direct current) fast chargers have the potential to charge electric cars in as little as 10 minutes for 200 miles of range. NYPA aims to help eliminate EV range-anxiety by installing up to 200 DCFC 150kW chargers at a target of 30 mile intervals along key interstate corridors and in select urban hubs by the end of 2019. NYPA will collaborate with partners to determine optimal locations focusing on accessibility, convenience, affordability, and reliability of charging.
Airport Charging Hubs: With more than 20 million passenger car trips around New York's JFK and LGA airports annually, new EV charging hubs located at these high-traffic airports have the potential to serve EV drivers within a 200 mile-radius of New York City.
EV Model Communities: Create and implement EV friendly Model Communities that support a utility-managed charging platform to ensure affordability, reliability, and grid efficiency.
