NYSERDA DCFC Program
Through the Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC) Program, PON 4509, NYSERDA is soliciting proposals to develop DCFC stations in the Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse areas, prioritizing charging in areas that lack access, including underserved communities. The program is intended to reduce the cost of purchasing and installing DCFC stations for use in New York State and ultimately accelerate electric vehicle adoption. Proposals are due March 14, 2023.
Utility EV Make-Ready Programs
Through this program, entities seeking to install or participate in the installation of L2 and/or DCFC chargers can earn incentives that will offset a large portion of, or in some cases, all of the infrastructure costs associated with preparing a site for EV charger installation.
