New York State is pushing ahead with the plan to remove gas powered cars from the roads of the Empire State. In fact, there are incentives being put together in New York State for those who will buy an EV and install a charger at home.

Are you ready to go all electric? Have you made the switch already? If not, it may be time to consider it as it may be getting cheaper to do so.

New York is putting as much as $29 million towards installing more electric vehicle charging stations across the state. Governor Hochul also says some of the money will be allocated to incentivize New Yorkers to make the switch, which could add up to $2 thousand per driver!

Spectrum News reports that:

New York is also adding $14 million to a rebate program to reduce the cost of leasing or purchasing a new electric vehicle.
