NYS PSC Announces Changes To New York’s EV Make Ready Program


Gov. Kathy Hochul announced the New York State Public Service Commission made major changes to New York’s electric vehicle “make-ready” program to speed up the transition to zero-emissions electric vehicles.

The changes approved by the Public Service Commission include increasing the overall ratepayer-funded EV Make-Ready Program from $701 million to $1.24 billion, with $372 million in funding support programs in disadvantaged communities. That represents a sharp increase from the previous budget of $206 million. The budget increase included expanding the direct current fast charging program target from 1500 to over 6300 charging stations, along with higher incentive levels to accelerate the build-out of EV charging infrastructure across New York.

Hochul says the program improvements will encourage more people to own electric vehicles, helping to build a clean and sustainable future.
