New York State Invests in Electric Vehicles

The New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) recently approved a $750 million initiative to speed up the construction of 50,000 charging stations throughout the state by the year 2025 as part of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s “Make Ready” order. The governor’s initiative also calls for $4.4 million in spending for an additional 4,650 charging stations on Long Island that would charge up to 188,000 electric vehicles (EVs) islandwide within five years.
