Last Thursday, Gov. Cuomo announced that the state is seeking proposals to develop innovative strategies to expand the marketplace and to use electric vehicles to provide electric grid resiliency. Up to $3.5 million is being made available through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

Gov. Cuomo said:

“Clean cars are the way of the future, and with a tremendous increase in the number of electric vehicles sold this year, it is clear New Yorkers support efforts to combat climate change. Innovation is what drives New York and we are proud to incentivize the development of improved technologies that will create a cleaner, greener and more sustainable future for all.”
