Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Coming Across New York State

ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Cuomo administration said this week that some 360 charging stations for electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids will be installed across the state as part of a five-year initiative to expand their use.

The goal, state officials said, is a statewide network of up to 3,000 public and workplace charging stations.

Officials hope to get 40,000 plug-in vehicles on the road as fuel-efficient alternatives.

The New York Power Authority this week requested bids for installing 100 charging stations at 36 locations for public use, including transportation hubs and other public and private parking lots, primarily in the New York City Metro area. They are expected to be operating by 2014.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority awarded $3.6 million to 14 organizations to install more than 260 stations from Long Island to Buffalo
