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 the State get ready to accommodate more than 30,000 plug-in electric vehicles by 2018 and 1 million by 2025. To support these new electric vehicles, the State aims to install 3,000 EV charging stations to support an expected 30,000-40,000 EVs on the road by 2018.

NYSERDA, the New York Power Authority (NYPA), and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) are collaborating on this initiative.
