Get the Facts on EV Charging

March 31, 2021

Going electric is one of the best ways New Yorkers can fight climate change.

As part of our public awareness campaign on electric vehicles, Plug It In, NY, we released the second in our series of fact sheets to encourage New Yorkers to make an EV their next vehicle. 

Our second fact sheet covers everything there is to know about charging an EV. 

Many drivers may shy away from EVs because they feel the charging process is overly complicated. As of January 2020, only 45,000 EVs had been purchased by New Yorkers.

However, as the fact sheet reveals, the notion that charging is difficult couldn’t be further from the truth. We go over the three types of chargers, (Level 1, Level 2, and DC fast), what plugs they use, and how fast they charge. Our fact sheet also covers the cost to install and use home chargers as well as the cost and payment options for public chargers. 

We hope to encourage more New Yorkers to make their next car an EV by clearing up the charging process. Read the full fact sheet here.
