The Groundwork for Electric Vehicles
New York City has been leading the way since the seventeenth century. In 1915, it was a New York entrepreneur who was the first to paint his taxis yellow. And while New York City wasn’t the first to build a subway system for transit in the country or the world, they built the largest underground rail system in the United States, a record they still hold to this day. The Capital of the World has championed the use of electric transportation since they built power stations specifically to power their subway with Edison’s direct current.
New York’s Commitment to Sustainability
New York City was one of the earliest major cities to prioritize sustainability with its groundbreaking PlaNYC. Under this plan, NYC aims to reduce emissions by 30 percent by the year 2030. When this plan was created in 2007, few people realized what an impact electric vehicles could have. We now know they will play a key role in helping forward-thinking cities reach their goals. The promotion of electric vehicles and the infrastructure to keep them running has been prioritized in the PlaNYC.
The New Way to Get Around in NYC
As the city now aims to become carbon neutral by 2050, it must continue to increase accessibility to private and public charging stations. At a recent count, only 14,000 of the 1.9 million cars and SUVs in New York City were electric vehicles, and there were only 1,200 publicly accessible charging stations. If New York is going to reach its goals, it will need to expand access to electric vehicle chargers across the five boroughs. Fortunately, New York is known all over the world for its ability to rise above and come out on top. We’re confident that they will succeed with help from Smart Charge America.
New York and Smart Charge America Look to the Future
New York is second only to California when it comes to encouraging electric vehicle ownership. The Empire State plans to convert its entire massive municipal fleet to electric by 2040. The state senate has recently passed Bill S.3929, which is legislation to encourage charging infrastructure. State and local governments are also focusing on building opportunities to charge electric vehicles in disadvantaged communities. By creating necessary infrastructure now and in the near future, New York guarantees success for steadily rising sales of electric vehicles.
Electric cars already offer increased reliability and sustainability, but EV drivers in New York have even more to be excited about. The state offers considerable rebate incentives that combine with the Federal Tax Credit. Many of the state’s toll roads offer special discounts to electric vehicle owners, including the Thruway Authority’s Green Pass Discount Plan and the Port Authority’s Green Pass Program. And with Smart Charge America’s arrival in New York City, it will be easier than ever to install a home charger for your electric vehicle.
