ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) — Governor Kathy Hochul announced Monday that a dozen new electric vehicle chargers have been set up from the Southern Tier to Western New York.
According to the governor’s office, the new chargers will help ensure that electric vehicle drivers in New York do not have to worry about running out of charge.
Among the new high-speed charging sites includes four in Jamestown, two at Second and North Main Streets, and two at East 4th Street and Prendergast Avenue.
“New York State is charging forward toward a greener and cleaner future by making electric vehicles more accessible to everyone,” Governor Hochul said. “These new charging stations are sited along the most traveled corridor in the southern region, which will be pivotal towards encouraging drivers in the Southern Tier and Western New York to make the transition to greener vehicles.”
The governor’s office says that the new chargers can charge most of the battery capacity in any make or model of E-V in as little as 20 minutes.
