Extra Info    Transportation is responsible for almost 30% of NYC's greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), with most of these emissions coming from passenger cars. Increasing the number of Electric Vehicles (EVs) in the five boroughs is an important part of the city’s effort to fight climate change by reducing GHG emission 80% by 2050. Compared to conventional vehicles, EVs have: lower emissions, less noise, and discounts on tolls. There are three different charging levels for EVs: Level 1 Charge (Up to 5 miles of range per hour of charging, Standard household outlet, Low voltage); Level 2 Charge (Up to 20 miles of range per hour of charge, Mid-level voltage (240v), commonly used in large appliances like dryers); Level 3 Charge: (Over 30 miles of range per 10 minutes of charge, DC Fast Charging, the fastest charging option (over 480v). New York City is creating PlugNYC, a comprehensive network of publicly accessible Level 2 Chargers and DC fast chargers. Level 2 charging stations allow EV owners to charge their vehicles while parked at home, at work, or curbside. DC fast chargers offer a charging experience comparable to a gas station.
