In December 2022, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced its adoption of California’s Advanced Clean Cars II Rule, requiring all new cars, pickup trucks, and SUVs sold in New York to be zero-emission by 2035. The state also established the clean fuel standard of 2023, targeting 20% cut in carbon intensity from road transportation by 2031.
Charging Infrastructure Policies
In April of 2023, Governor Hochul announced $8.3 million to municipalities to install ~250 new public charging stations in 70 communities. In May 2023, New York Governor earmarked a further $29 million to finance Charge Ready NY 2.0 and consumer rebates through the Drive Clean Rebate program. Charge Ready NY 2.0 program offers $4,000 per charging port installed at a public facility located within a Disadvantaged Community; and $2,000 per charging port installed at a workplace or multi-unit dwelling location.
To facilitate the transition to zero-emission vehicles, New York State has enacted the Drive Clean Rebate which offers up to $2,000 for new EV purchases or leases.
