EVs & Charging Stations for New Yorkers
1. Buying Electric Vehicles
Driving an EV means fewer maintenance costs than gas-powered vehicles and benefits from insurance discounts while significantly reducing your carbon footprint. Switching to an EV has never been more affordable: New Yorkers can save up to $9,500 on an EV purchase or lease through New York’s Drive Clean rebate and the Federal IRA tax credit.Learn more about electric vehicles
2. Charging Your EV at Home
Most EV drivers primarily charge at home for convenience and reduced cost. To charge at home, EV owners can simply plug their cars into a standard 120-volt outlet or install a faster Level 2 (240-volt) charging station.
3. Charging Your EV On the Road
With improved battery technology and widely available charging stations across the Northeast, your EV can take you anywhere you need to go. Federal and State programs are rapidly expanding New York’s network of public charging stations, with an emphasis on fast chargers that can recharge your vehicle in as little as 20 minutes. Charge your EV while you eat at your favorite restaurant, while you work from your office, or while you shop for groceries — then get back on the road and drive clean.
