Governor Cuomo announced a proposal - to be included in his upcoming State of the State Address agenda - to install 500 new electric charging stations at workplaces.
Renee Vogelsang, Coordinator of the New Yorkers for Clean Power campaign, released the following statement in response to the news:
"We applaud Governor Cuomo for proposing 500 new electrical vehicle charging stations at workplaces across New York State. Electric vehicles are the cars of the future, saving consumers money and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This announcement is great news because we know that having an electric charging station at a workplace is one of the most important factors in people's decisions to buy electric vehicles. Thanks to Governor Cuomo for another great investment in the clean energy economy and for his leadership on climate change."
