Now is a great time to buy an electric vehicle (EV)! There are incentives and support available to both you and your local government which make it attainable and affordable for consumers to purchase EVs, and make more public charging available.  

In this segment NYSERDA’s Clean Energy Communities Program will be outlined, including a case study of how the town of Red Hook was able to receive state rebates for their charging station installations, as well as a discussion about how to capture funding specifically for your municipality. There will also be a Q&A session at the end with time to mingle and get all of your questions answered.
