Electric Vehicles

Transportation is the largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions in New York State, so it is imperative that we quickly electrify all vehicles. New Yorkers for Clean Power is committed to achieving New York State’s goal of getting 1 million electric vehicles on the road by 2025 and expanding infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs). We advance this work by:

  • Connecting municipal officials and businesses with resources and funding opportunities to install new charging stations through outreach and organizing workshops and webinars.
  • Building a buzz for EVs by featuring towns and businesses that have installed charging stations and EV drivers by organizing press and test drive events and sharing on social media.
  • Organizing promotional events including National Drive Electric Week, September 14-22, 2019


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