Most New Yorkers tell us they “would consider purchasing an electric car, if they only had a place to charge it”. Unknown to these electric vehicle fans is that New York City has a public charging system that is just waiting for new cars. Presently, over 80 charging locations have been placed in public garages across the 5 boroughs and about the same amount will be installed soon.
What if my garage doesn’t have a charging station?
If your garage doesn’t have a charger, see if it has plans to install one. It may want to keep you as a customer. In lieu of installing a permanent charger, some garages also let you plug in your personal charger into a wall outlet. Some drivers have been designated a special outlet by talking the matter over with their garage’s manager and parking attendants.
