The program will deploy over 50,000 new public and commercial level-two charging stations across the state by 2025 to increase the number of non-residential charging ports.
Gov. Hochul’s announcement comes after the State Public Service Commission recently approved the rules by which all major investor-owned utility companies in the state can continue to implement the program.
“New York leads the nation in clean energy innovation to combat climate change and bring environmental justice to impacted communities, and today’s decision brings us one step closer to a greener, emission-free future,” said Gov. Hochul. “The EV Make Ready program is designed to help electrify our transportation sector and support our mandate that all new passenger cars and trucks sold in the state by 2035 be zero-emission while making sure all New Yorkers benefit from cleaner air and the creation of new, well-paying jobs.”
