    EV

    Electric vehicles (EVs) save money and reduce air pollution. Compared to gasoline-powered cars, EVs are more energy efficient and cost about 50 to 70% less to operate per mile. Because New York’s electricity includes clean sources, EVs reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants that cause smog and acid rain. New York State is striving to be ready to accommodate 1 million plug-in electric vehicles by 2025 through Charge NY. For more information, visit the website of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
