  • Illegal Parking to report a vehicle parked at a charging station but not actively charging

New York City supports the use of all-electric vehicles (EVs). EVs are a clean alternative to gasoline and diesel-fueled vehicles.


  • Reduce fuel costs
  • Emit 70% less carbon dioxide emissions
  • Do not pollute from tailpipes

EVs reduce pollution and keep New York City streets clean.

Learn more about all-electric vehicles (EVs).

You can get a Federal tax rebate on the purchase of an electric vehicle. The tax rebate is up to $7,500 (based on the battery size).

Electric vehicles can use carpool lanes on the Long Island Expressway. The number of passengers does not matter.

Curbside Charging Program

Department of Transportation (DOT) has installed 100 public curbside EV chargers across all 5 boroughs. This is in partnership with Con Edison and charging provider FLO.

EV owners pay for curbside charging on a per hour basis using FLO's mobile app or a Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) card. These parking spaces are reserved for actively charging EVs only. Vehicles parked in these spaces but not actively charging may be ticketed by the NYPD.

In addition to the “EV Charging Only” regulations at curbside charges, users are still responsible for complying with existing on-street parking regulations, including metered parking regulations.

Electric Vehicle Charger Home Installation

EV chargers require a direct connection to an electrical panel in a home. A licensed electrician must complete the installation. They can handle the permit requirements for the installation.

Reducing Electricity Costs for Vehicle Charging

Most customers pay for electricity based on a flat rate. This means that the cost of electric is the same no matter what time you use it.

You can use "late night electricity" to save money. This means electricity used during overnight is cheaper. Electricity used during the day is more expensive.

Homeowners can take advantage of late-night electricity billing by either:

  • Adding a second electric meter
  • Choosing to pay for electricity based on "time of use"
