Electric Vehicle Make-Ready Program

The goal of New York's Order Establishing Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Make-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.
