New York Broadens Network for Electric Vehicle Charging

Posted by


Our success story this week stops in Syracuse,
New York, where this vibrant college town is all abuzz over electric vehicles. Already,
a network of 68 charging stations has been installed throughout central New York. This
strategic EV infrastructure, implemented by Syracuse Synapse Sustainability Trust, makes
EV commuting between nearby cities easy and convenient. A 22-kilowatt rooftop solar panel system helps
power the nine Blink stations outside SST’s headquarters. The project is partially funded
by a DOE grant through the Clean Communities of Central New York coalition. People will want to enjoy the lower cost benefits
of using electricity as a motor fuel because the cost is about one-fifth of the cost of
gasoline. Other local alt-fuel efforts include this
private- and public-access compressed natural gas filling station. The National Grid utilities
company fills their fleet of nearly 30 mixed-use CNG vehicles here, displacing nearly 100,000
gallons of gasoline in the past year—two great examples of the heart of New York’s
dedication to clean energy.
