New York will install 150 EV fast chargers this year

The new chargers are part of NYPA’s EVolve NY charging infrastructure network being installed along key travel corridors and in urban areas to encourage the adoption of EVs.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced the first of five planned high-speed electric-vehicle charging hubs at multiple Mirabito Convenience Store locations in Central New York.

Made possible by an agreement between Mirabito and the New York Power Authority, the new EVolve NY charging hubs will offer a total of 19 chargers at the five Mirabito sites. The first location, at an Oneonta Mirabito station, will be the seventh installation in NYPA’s EVolve NY statewide charging infrastructure network.

The new chargers are part of NYPA’s EVolve NY charging infrastructure network being installed along key travel corridors and in urban areas to encourage the adoption of EVs. EVolve NY will install up to 150 chargers across New York State by the end of 2021. 

The five hubs, which are planned to be operational by this fall, will offer emission-free electric charging to New Yorkers.

The Southside Oneonta location is the first site hosted by Mirabito Convenience Stores. Other Mirabito sites will be primarily located in the Binghamton-Syracuse corridor. Construction is set to begin in June and includes two locations in Syracuse, and stores in Castle Creek and Binghamton. NYPA will construct, own and operate the EVolve NY charging network in coordination with Mirabito site hosts.
