The city of Rochester plans to install 24 charging stations around the city as part of a statewide program.
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Wednesday that $4.4 million has been awarded to 10 companies, municipalities and other entities to enable more than 325 new electric-vehicle charging stations to be installed across the state.
The stations are supported by a joint effort by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Demonstration Program and the U.S. Department of Energy.
In Rochester, through NYSERDA funding, stations will be installed at municipal garages, City Hall, the Port of Rochester and the Rochester Public Market.
NYSERDA will also be managing a $10 million fund that offers vouchers of up to $20,000 per vehicle for the purchase of EV commercial trucks weighing more than 10,000 pounds.
