Blink Deploys EV Chargers in New York

The charging stations support New York state’s goal of having 100% zero-emission passenger-vehicle sales by 2035.

Blink Charging Co. announced the deployment and installation of 34 chargers at eight locations throughout the Village of Tuckahoe, New York, building a significant EV charging infrastructure for the village.

“Electric-vehicle adoption in the New York metropolitan area is strong, and additional infrastructure is needed to support growth. Tuckahoe has demonstrated vision and forward thinking to meet the needs of EV drivers in the area,” said Michael Battaglia, chief revenue officer for Blink Charging. “We are excited to continue the rollout of charging infrastructure throughout the region and we thank the village for their trust in Blink.”

Tuckahoe installed Blink IQ 200 Level 2 chargers, which are centrally located in Tuckahoe’s Fisher Avenue, Lake Avenue, Main Street, and Oak Avenue parking lots, with additional chargers located in Depot Square and on Columbus Avenue. Tuckahoe began to install these stations in the spring of 2020 with Consolidated Edison covering much of the installation costs through its EV Make-Ready program.

Funding for the new charging stations was made possible by support from New York state’s Charge Ready NY program, administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. Con Edison’s EV Make-Ready programs are designed to increase EV adoption and help reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from the transportation sector. 

The charging stations support New York state’s goal of having 100% zero-emission passenger-vehicle sales by 2035.

Tuckahoe Mayor Omayra Andino; Sustainable Westchester, a nonprofit, consortium of Westchester County local governments; and Consolidated Edison announced the completion of this significant new EV charging network in Tuckahoe at a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this month.

The public charging infrastructure will appeal to electric-vehicle owners that find themselves in Tuckahoe for work, recreation or access to one of Tuckahoe’s two Metro-North train stations, both of which are now only a few steps away from some of the new charging stations.

Blink’s IQ 200 chargers are the fastest Level 2 AC charging stations available, according to the company. Each IQ 200 produces 80 amps of output, translating to approximately 65 miles of charge in an hour. Operated on the Blink Network, they can charge any battery-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle.
