In 2021, PISO is building 14 EVolveNY next-generation car charging sites across New York: NYPA is working towards building out a robust network of public charging sites for drivers. These sites will allow cars to replenish 200 miles of driving range in approximately 15 minutes.
PISO and NYPA anticipate building 20+ additional EVolveNY sites in 2022, and more in future years.
Spring 2022, PISO will commission the first set of chargers in a Buffalo bus depot that currently houses 120 buses. The first phase of construction includes the construction of a substation to supply enough power for all 120 buses to eventually charge in the depot. PISO plans to add chargers at a rate of approx. 10 per year for the next 10 years as the fleet turns over. The chargers being installed are “overhead pantograph” —when the bus parks for the night a robotic arm lowers and connects power to the bus.
PISO recently was awarded a contract to become NYPA’s primary service provider for charging equipment installed north of Westchester.
