EV Inihetiatives in New York Spur More Sales, High Expectations

From deciding the fate of future electric generation in Western New York, to the US Energy Information Administration announcing New York state has the lowest CO2 emissions per capita in America, to news this week surrounding the launch of a project to spur development for electric vehicle (EV) sales – New York has encountered its fair share of energy headlines this month.

The project begins with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), which will be funding $1 million for the installation of 80 new electric vehicle charging stations throughout New York. 67 of the 80 stations will be within the territory of National Grid, which is combining with ChargePoint, a California green company that has built the world’s largest network of EV charging stations, to contribute an additional $550k to the project. ChargePoint will be responsible for spearheading the installations.

This initiative goes hand-in-hand with Governor Cuomo’s “Charge NY” plan announced earlier this year as President and CEO of NYSERDA Francis J Murray Jr. explained at the unveiling of the first EV charging station for the initiative in Colonie, NY last week; “Governor Cuomo’s Charge NY program is developing an EV charging infrastructure across the state that will encourage and accommodate consumers in the purchase of electric vehicles.” Bill Flaherty, regional executive for National Grid’s Eastern New York division, added, “The collaboration among NYSERDA, ChargePoint, and National Grid is a model of a public-private partnership working for New York State and the environment.”
