New York gives $634,000 for electric car charging stations to Syracuse nonprofit and its new owner

Last summer, Synapse Sustainability Trust paid to replace 68 electric vehicle charges in Syracuse and Rome because they failed to charge individual customers for usage. Now a Miami group has bought the trust’s car charging effort, and the state has awarded another round of money to help the groups install more stations throughout New York. (Dennis Nett |

Syracuse, N.Y. – New York state has awarded $300,000 for more electric car charging stations to Syracuse nonprofit EVPass that last summer had to rip out and reinstall dozens of faulty stations.

The state also recently awarded an extra $334,000 in tax dollars for additional car charging units to a Florida company that announced today it has completed its acquisition of EVPass.

Car Charging Group, of Miami, announced it would take over 68 charging stations in and around Central New York formerly run by EVPass, a part of Synapse Sustainability Trust.

The sustainability trust is the nonprofit arm of Synapse LLC, an environmental consulting and insurance group headed by Eckardt “Chris” Beck and Vita DeMarchi, the past chair of the Onondaga County Democratic Party.

Beck is now on the board of directors of Car Charging Group, according to a news release from the company.
