According to the electrek website, the city of New York City has announced an important electric car charging plan, which will set up 50 quick charging stations in five districts.The deployment of the new plant will begin next year and will continue until 2020.
New York City mayor bill DE blasio announced Tuesday that the city will work with power company Edison to invest $10 million in the project.
Bill - bill blasio said: "the New York City will continue to invest in new technology we need, in order to reduce carbon emissions, especially in President give up announced his retirement from trump, especially under the background of the Paris climate agreement.By helping to develop the infrastructure needed for electric cars, we will make it easier for new yorkers to switch to electric vehicles than ever before.This is another step in our approach to tackling climate change."
New York City hopes to add many electric cars to the roads over the next 10 years, and they will start their own electric fleet.
Last year, the city bought 80 all-electric Chevrolet Bolt electric cars at a high discount to promote the sharing of the car business.The city also plans to add more electric cars to its fleet.These vehicles will also benefit from the increase in the number of charging stations.
New York state recently introduced a new $2, 000 electric car incentive program that will benefit from the tesla Model 3, the Chevrolet Bolt EV and other low-cost electric vehicles.
The New York City statement is important for several reasons.First, the statement focuses on quick charging stations.So far, rapid charging stations are still lacking, and many companies have been focused on deploying slower two-tier chargers.
Second, the statement talked about a number of charging stations.The statement referred to it as a "fast charging center" and planned "a maximum of 20 chargers for each site."That's good news, because apart from tesla's supercharger stations, you rarely see a charging station with four or six chargers.
At present, most of the New York City and surrounding areas have been deployed with a slow charging rate of 2.There are 526 2-level chargers in 307 charging stations, with only 16 quick chargers.
These new fast charging centers can add up to 1,000 quick chargers, and tesla plans to add many quick chargers through its expansion of its supercharger network.Tesla plans to build eight more supercharging stations in Manhattan by the end of next year.
It is sometimes difficult to judge the market and adjust its ev adoption rate and the deployment of a charging station.But now it seems that New York is heading in the right direction.
