Alternative Fuel Infrastructure
PE06.12 - Alternative Fuel Infrastructure
Alternative-fuel vehicles can help increase energy security, improve fuel economy, lower fuel costs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Charging stations are being installed at a wide variety of locations across New York State. This action is an attempt to identify sites suited to hosting charging and fueling stations for clean vehicles.
The Task Force is currently working on identifying locations in Columbia County that have adequate Electrical Grid capacity and enough traffic to support DC Fast Chargers. We are reaching out to municipal leaders to help us identify private businesses and land owners interested in learning more about the siting process and funding opportunities. If you are a business owner or a town official and interested in learning more, please let us know:

Local government incentives available under Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)
Local Governments and Not-For-Profits that normally aren't eligible for tax credits may be able to apply for Elective-Pay credits under IRA proposed rules. These credits will be available for a variety of clean energy projects including Commercial Clean Vehicles and alternative fuel vehicle refueling and charging equipment.
