A study released by the New York State Department of Public Service recommends establishing a statewide utility-supported “Make-Ready” Program to promote responsible electric vehicle charging station deployment. The report recommends that the Public Service Commission direct the State’s major electric utilities to build the grid infrastructure needed to enable installation of publicly accessible EV charging stations. The “Make-Ready” Program would run through 2025 to coincide with New York’s goal of deploying 850,000 zero-emission vehicles by the end of that year.
