To Install 360 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

ALBANY—More than 360 electric vehicle (EV) and plug-in hybrid charging stations will be installed across the state in support of the Governor’s ChargeNY initiative.

Charge NY, unveiled by Governor Cuomo during his State of the State address earlier this year, is an initiative to create a statewide network of up to 3,000 public and workplace charging stations over the next five years and to put up to 40,000 plug-in vehicles on the road during that period.

This initiative is being spearheaded by both the New York Power Authority (NYPA) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

In support of ChargeNY’s goals, NYPA has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the installation of 100 electric vehicle charging stations equipped with smart charging capabilities to reduce EV charging demand on the electric grid at periods of peak demand. The charging stations will be located at 36 convenient locations, including transportation hubs, and other public and private parking lots, primarily in the Metropolitan New York City area and are expected to be in operation by 2014. Copies of the RFP can be found at

In addition, NYSERDA has awarded $3.6 million to 14 organizations to install more than 260 electric vehicle charging stations across the state, from Long Island to Buffalo. Most stations will be dual charging stations, with the ability to accommodate two vehicles at once.

Projects being funded by NYSERDA include:

Access Technology Integration Inc., Troy, $267,000 – 26 EV charging stations in Schenectady County, including at Schenectady County Community College, a public library, a nursing home, Schenectady City Hall, parking garages and surface parking lots. Stations will be available for both public and county fleet vehicle use.
Beam Charging LLC, Roslyn, $300,000 –21 EV charging stations at locations in upper Manhattan, Brooklyn and Long Island. The stations will be located in public parking garages and parking lots, including mall locations.
Car Charging Group Inc., Miami, Fla., $334,000 – 30 EV charging stations throughout New YorkState, including workplace, retail and multifamily locations.
City of White Plains, $200,000 –10 EV charging stations at multifamily residences around the city.
