New York recently introduced its first fast-charging electric vehicle (EV) station in Ulster County, which officials say can juice up a car in as little as 20 minutes for newer EVs. The project is being paid for, in part, by the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which is pushing the buildout of critical infrastructure for EVs to make owning them more convenient. NY’s Department of Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez says federal law requires these super-efficient charging stations be available every 50 miles of heavily-traveled highway, similar to how rest stops are laid out. Currently, the state has more than 150 charging ports at 39 sites along statewide major travel corridors.
