Unfortunately, I can't yet post a link (still too new to the forum), but you can find it by searching "NYPA Evolve NY". Maybe someone else can post the link.

The end goal is pretty exciting, if it actually comes to fruition. It would be a huge leap forward for quick charging in upstate NY.
Presumably it's this: Bringing Fast, Affordable, Convenient DC Fast Charging Across New York State.

Bringing Fast, Affordable, Convenient DC Fast Charging Across New York State

Through EVolve NY, NYPA has committed up to $250 million through 2025 - to invest in Electric Vehicle (EV) infrastructure, services, and consumer awareness efforts.

  • Phase 1 Goal: Eliminate range-anxiety and deploy a comprehensive network of Fast Chargers

Whether taking a road trip across New York, or to neighboring States and Canada, our goal is to develop a fast charging network that is easy to use, focuses on driver convenience and accessibility, and is quick! The EVolve NY fast charging network will deploy charging sites at approximate 40-50 mile intervals on key corridors, a 10 charger hub at JFK airport, and provide urban charging in Yonkers, Albany, Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo.

Initial Phase
The initial phase of funding directs $40 million into three new initiatives through the end of 2019: Interstate Fast Chargers (DCFC), Airport Charging Hubs, EV Model Communities.
  • Interstate and Urban Fast Chargers: DC (direct current) fast chargers have the potential to charge electric cars in as little as 10 minutes for 200 miles of range. NYPA aims to help eliminate EV range-anxiety by installing up to 200 DCFC 150kW chargers at a target of 30 mile intervals along key interstate corridors and in select urban hubs by the end of 2019. NYPA will collaborate with partners to determine optimal locations focusing on accessibility, convenience, affordability, and reliability of charging.
  • Airport Charging Hubs: With more than 20 million passenger car trips around New York's JFK and LGA airports annually, new EV charging hubs located at these high-traffic airports have the potential to serve EV drivers within a 200 mile-radius of New York City.
  • EV Model Communities: Create and implement EV friendly Model Communities that support a utility-managed charging platform to ensure affordability, reliability, and grid efficiency.
