White Plains adds charging stations

WHITE PLAINS – The City of White Plains is expanding the number of vehicle charging stations to 30 shortly. The city currently has 20, but with a $26,400 state grant, another 10 will be added in three more parking garages.

Five years into the installation program, the city “is fast becoming an electric vehicle model for others to follow,” said John Markowitz of the New York Power Authority.

The 20 charging stations in use now have been used for 1,119 hours so far this year.

In addition, 20 percent of the city’s vehicle fleet is electric and as gas-powered vehicles in service reach the end of their useful life, they will be replaced with electric models.
