“New York has made remarkable progress advancing our transition from fossil fuels and reducing harmful vehicle emissions statewide as part of our nation-leading climate agenda,” Governor Hochul said. “Thanks to initiatives like the Municipal Zero-Emissions Vehicle Infrastructure grants, communities across New York State are taking bold action to protect the environment and tackle the climate crisis. We will continue to invest in clean energy to improve the health and quality of life of New Yorkers and ensure a safe and sustainable future.”

Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Basil Seggos said, “DEC is proud to work with the communities and local leaders across the state investing in clean energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and building sustainable infrastructure. This funding will continue to grow New York’s electric vehicle charging network in communities as we shift to zero-emissions vehicles to reduce emissions and improve the health and safety of New Yorkers. DEC applauds these communities working to address the climate crisis by acting locally to bolster the State’s climate leadership.”

Office of General Services Commissioner Jeanette Moy said, “Under Governor Hochul’s leadership, OGS is proud to lead the State’s effort to install EV charging stations for New York State agencies. OGS is working with our partners in government and the private sector to meet the Governor’s goal to convert the State’s light-duty fleet to 100 percent zero-emission vehicles by 2035.”

New York Power Authority Acting President and CEO Justin E. Driscoll said, “Moving EV adoption to the tipping point will require widespread collaboration and consumer education, and New York State agencies are working together to make it easier for consumers, businesses and local governments to make the transition. These investments in new charging installations push New York one step closer to a fully electrified transportation system.”
