Electric Vehicle Charging Station Developers and Operators

Save when installing and operating electric vehicle charging stations.

The goal of New York's Order Establishing Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Power Ready Program and Other Programs is to encourage the accelerated, forward-thinking development of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and promote the State's environmental and clean energy goals. Greater incentives may be available for sites located within one mile of Disadvantaged Community Areas.

This page contains information and resources for O&R's New York:

  • Electric Vehicle Fleet Assessment Services, and
  • Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Medium- and Heavy-Duty Power Ready Pilot Program

Commercial fleet operators will play a big part in accelerating the transition to a clean future through electrification. Within 20 years, nearly 15 million EVs are expected to be part of corporate fleets in the United States.

Top reasons to consider electrifying your fleet:

  • Low-Maintenance Save money and time with fewer moving parts and state-of-the-art motors that require less maintenance than internal combustion engines. Even brake pads last longer in electric vehicles because they use regenerative braking to slow down, converting the energy used to reduce the car’s speed into power that can be stored in the battery.
  • Company Sustainability Goals Transportation accounts for 36% of New York State’s greenhouse gas emissions, and gasoline-fueled vehicles typically produce double the CO2 emissions compared to their electric counterparts. A green fleet can drastically shrink your business’s carbon footprint.

PowerReady Light-Duty EV Charging Infrastructure Incentives

We’re offering incentives that can offset the electric infrastructure costs associated with installing Level 2 and/or Direct Current (DC) fast chargers for electric cars, small trucks, and vans under 10,000 pounds gross vehicle weight.

Applicants who meet certain program conditions can get incentives that cover up to 100% of the energy company and customer costs of installing level 2 or direct current fast-charging stations in designated “Disadvantaged Community” areas in New York.
