New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced that the state government will fund 100 new high-speed chargers in New York City. Most sites should be up and running next year - all of them by 2026.

The New York Power Authority will install all chargers in partnership with the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT). Seventy-six fast-chargers will be built at thirteen new EVolve NY hubs. The city will own another 20, while the remaining 12 will be installed at and operated by LaGuardia Airport.

The EVolve NY network is owned and operated by the New York Power Authority. The sites are located along “New York State’s major travel corridors” – so they exist in the entire state of New York and not just the Big Apple itself. According to a press release published by the state government, “over the past four years, 170 chargers have been installed at 43 sites, making it easy to travel from New York City to Buffalo, the Adirondacks or Montauk. 38 additional EVolve NY sites are in development, with a total of 90 sites and 400 chargers planned by the end of 2025.”

There is no technical information on the chargers available at this point.

“With the expansion of high-speed charging hubs, drivers will be able to find fast chargers wherever they want to go — whether visiting Manhattan, Syracuse or Buffalo or driving along the scenic roads of Upstate New York,” says New York Power Authority President and CEO Justin E. Driscoll. “The EVolve NY network is bringing additional affordable, accessible fast-charging opportunities to EV drivers, enabling them to play an even more significant role in the clean-energy transition.”

New York previously announced that it would spend more than one billion dollars on investments to electrify the transport sector and achieve the goal set by the Climate Act. Konkrete measures include expanding the fast-charging network across the state.

Third parties are investing there as well. Just a few weeks ago, the New York City-based developer of urban infrastructure Wildflower announced that it was building the city’s largest charging hub at JFK airport, which comprises 65 chargers, twelve of them rapid ones. Moreover, EV infrastructure startup Gravity opened its flagship Midtown Manhattan EV charging centre in March. It offers 24 charge points with 500 kW each, installed in a parking garage on West 42nd Street.
