ChargePoint Inc. has launched the first of more than 80 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations it will install in New York through a $1 million incentive from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

The new EV charging station, located at The Solaire building in Battery Park City, is ChargePoint's first installation of what will be part of a significant NYSERDA EV charging station investment, according to the company.

Last year, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, D-N.Y., announced $4.4 million being awarded to 10 EV companies, municipalities and other entities, including ChargePoint, to bring 325 charging stations to New York.

Earlier this year, Cuomo also announced Charge New York, a new initiative to promote EVs through investing $50 million over five years. The program calls for investment in 3,000 public and workplace charging stations by 2018, plus other steps meant to encourage the growth of EV ownership.
