The clean energy movement in New York is buzzing. The state is set to put $250 million toward increasing the amount of Electric Vehicles (EV) on the road. In collaboration with the New York Power Authority, EVolveNY will be the guiding force behind the dispensation of funds. Governor Cuomo said:
“New York has an incredible opportunity to move the needle on greenhouse gas reduction and get more electronic vehicles on the road by building more charging stations to ensure New Yorkers can drive them from one end of the state to the other. With the NYPA EVolve NY initiative, we are making a significant move to make driving an electric car a viable choice and an affordable option that can make significant strides in cleaning the air for all New Yorkers.”
Electrification is being supported in other US states as well. For example, $1.3 billion is being spread over California, New Jersey and New York to invest into changing stations and other expenses connected to electrification.
