Charge NY is New York State's initiative to get more electric cars and trucks on the road.

Electric vehicles (EVs) save money and reduce air pollution. Compared to gasoline-powered cars, EVs are more energy efficient and cost about 50 to 70 percent less to operate per mile. Charge NY is helping accelerate electric car sales, which have surpassed 30,000 since 2011. The State is focused on raising awareness of technology and supporting the installation of more charging stations to make it easy to travel anywhere in New York in an electric car.
