ELECTRIC VEHICLES

As part of New Yorkers for Clean Power’s efforts to accelerate New York’s emerging initiatives to scale up clean transportation, the campaign is aligned with the goals of Governor Cuomo's ChargeNY initiative to create a statewide network of up to 3,000 public and workplace charging stations over five years and to put as many as 40,000 plug-in vehicles on the road by 2018. NYCP helps connect local leaders and municipal officials to ChargeNY resources that will enable the installation of additional charging stations in towns and cities across NYS.

New Yorkers for Clean Power is driving a Ford Focus Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle across New York State on our “Road to Renewables” tour this spring and summer of 2016. NYCP will host educational events in communities and at car dealerships to connect car buyers to incentives and rebates so more New Yorkers can “plug-in” to the electric vehicle revolution!

Contact us at info@nyforcleanpower.org for help installing EV charging stations in your community, or to host a NYCP campaign event that will raise awareness about the important role that plug-in hybrids and municipal electric fleets play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollution.
