FLO installs the 100th EV charging station in New York City.

FLO partnered with the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) and Consolidated Edison (Con Edison) to install EV chargers.

EV charging network operator and smart charging solutions provider FLO announced that it installed and activated its 100th public EV charging station in New York City as part of a pilot program that began in June last year. FLO has partnered with the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) and Consolidated Edison (Con Edison) for this project.

The New York City DOT has set ambitious targets for vehicle electrification to meet its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. By the end of the next decade, the city will need over 40,000 publicly accessible Level 2 (L2) chargers to meet the projected demand of the nearly 400,000 EVs then expected to be registered in the city.

The project was made possible through funding by the New York State Public Service Commission’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative. The locations of the charging stations were selected based on input from local elected officials and community stakeholders, geographic diversity, and projected demand for charging.

FLO’s charging stations cost $2.50 per hour during the day (6 am – 9 pm) and $1.00 per hour overnight. A daytime charge will be equivalent to fueling up at a gas station, while overnight charging may be over 60 percent cheaper.

Louis Tremblay, president and CEO of FLO, said: New Yorkers are setting an example for cities across the country in their commitment to electrify their city. FLO is proud to be a partner in the transition to a cleaner future here in New York City by providing a curbside charging solution to the city’s residents. We know reliability is a crucial driver of EV adoption and we are proud to have been able to provide an unprecedented uptime of more than 99% in New York City by actively monitoring and maintaining every unit in the network. We look forward to the continued expansion of our charging network here in New York City and across the United States.

NYC DOT Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez, said: Electric vehicle adoption is an important piece in this administration’s efforts to reduce transportation emissions and protect the environment for our future generations. We’re proud to see this pilot expand to all five boroughs and thank our partners FLO and Con Edison for helping accelerate EV adoption citywide.
