Take Action Now

Electric vehicles (EVs) are a cost-effective, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly alternative to driving cars powered by dirty fossil fuels. EVs help reduce harmful emissions that contribute to climate change, air pollution, and smog, thus improving public health and reducing environmental damage. Help us make EVs readily accessible to Upstate New Yorkers, not just downstate residents!

Currently, New York severely restricts the number of stores and service centers EV manufactures can operate. As a result, the five stores that exist in NYS are located in Downstate New York, leaving upstate residents without a convenient location to purchase and service electric vehicles. Upstate NY residents should have equal access to vehicles that reduce costs and harmful emissions.

Legislation introduced in New York State would lift the cap on EV stores from five to 20, with at least one store in each of the Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Upper Hudson Valley regions. The Governor and Legislature should include this legislation in the FY 2018-19 State Budget!

Email Governor Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Flanagan, and Assembly Speaker Heastie today and urge them to include the expansion of electric vehicle sales and services in the FY 2018-19 State Budget.

Learn more at these upcoming events throughout Upstate New York! Telsa will be hosting a policy forum and viewing of its electric vehicles at the locations below. Between 4pm and 8pm, you can view electric vehicles, and at 6pm you can hear about proposed legislation and from your local elected officials!
