ALBANY, N.Y. – New York State is providing $2.2 million in rebates from the Environmental Protection Fund for municipalities to purchase or lease electric (plug-in hybrid or battery) or hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and for installation of public charging or fuel cell refueling infrastructure.
“New York is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector, just as we have already significantly reduced emissions from electric power,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said.
“These investments are part of New York’s focus, at all levels of government, to build cutting-edge, resilient infrastructure, generate more energy from renewable sources, and support a cleaner, greener, more sustainable New York for all.”
The rebates will total $1 million for electric vehicle supply equipment infrastructure, $1 million for hydrogen fuel cell infrastructure, and $200,000 for clean vehicles.
Applications for rebates will be accepted through May 31, 2018.
