New York City (NYC) is putting in 13 EV fast-charging hubs across city parking garages. The charging hubs being rolled out by the New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) and New York Power Authority (NYPA) will include approximately 50 fast-charging plugs.
“This investment will accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles across the city, provide more equitable access to charging, and advance Mayor Eric Adams’ administration’s plan to transition 100,000-plus high-volume for-hire vehicles to zero-emissions by 2030. Once installed, these chargers will bring the city closer to achieving the Adams Administration’s goal of all New Yorkers living within 2.5 miles of a fast-charger by 2035, recently announced in PlaNYC: Getting Sustainability Done.”
New York City aims to have 100% of new cars, trucks, and SUVs be fully electric by 2035. You can find the specific locations of the fast charging hubs here. You can also find a long transcript of quotes from politicians there. Here’s just one of those, from the mayor himself:
“New York City is plugging into a cleaner, greener, and more prosperous future,” said New York City Mayor Eric Adams. “The climate crisis is urgent, and our administration has set ambitious goals to electrify all Uber and Lyft trips and ensure every New Yorker lives within 2.5 miles of a fast charger. The public and private sectors must work together to create the infrastructure we need to reach those goals, and this partnership with NYSERDA represents a big step in the right direction.”

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
