Grant of $1 Million to Support ‘Evr-Green’ Level 2 Installations
Leviton reports a $1 million grant to install electric vehicle charging stations in New York State in support of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s “Charge NY” initiative.
Leviton says it will help enable EV charging at workplaces in upstate New York, New York City and Long Island with its Evr-Green brand dual port Level 2 chargers.
It’s part of a $3.6 million project funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the New York Power Authority (NYPA). “Through the Charge NY initiative, Governor Cuomo hopes to create a network of 3,000 public and workplace charging stations across the state over the next five years and encourage more electric vehicles on the road,” Leviton says.
The manufacturer notes that its charging stations are designed and engineered in the U.S., and allow fast charging of any SAE J1772 compatible electric vehicle. “Leviton’s Evr-Green Charging Stations offer high reliability, plug-in electric vehicle charging that drivers prefer,” states a release.
“The easy-to-use stations provide multiple power options, integrating aesthetics and ergonomics with sturdy construction – ideal for commercial applications.”
Michael Mattei is VP and general manager for the Leviton commercial and industrial business unit.
