ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) - Governor Kathy Hochul announced the launch of New York's Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program website.

The newly launched website provides additional background on the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure funding program. It includes a short survey to collect user feedback in order to assist the state in the development of its Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan.

The website also allows visitors to sign up for alerts as more information on the development program becomes available. 

"We cannot sufficiently reduce our carbon footprint unless we keep expanding our electric vehicle infrastructure, but thanks to the efforts of President Biden, Senator Schumer, Senator Gillibrand and our Congressional Delegation, who fought for the creation of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program, we have additional resources to help us reach our climate goals," Governor Hochul said. "Expanding our electrical vehicle capabilities is a key part of my administration's ongoing efforts to reduce the impact of climate change across New York State. This new online tool will not only help educate the public on the future of electric vehicle charging, but will give us additional data to plan the next phase of New York's transportation electric charging network development."

A public meeting on New York's Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan development will be announced by NYSDOT.
