In his 2013 State of the State speech, Governor Cuomo said he wanted to push the state towards a clean tech economy. With that he introduced the Charge New York program intended to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. One visible sign of the support network for electric vehicle drivers are the newly-installed charging stations around the state. But what affect are they really having on vehicle trends?
