Con Edison is planning to add three curbside electric vehicle charging stations on the Upper West Side, and will present its plans on Tuesday to a Community Board 7 committee.
There are already charging stations in the neighborhood, but many of them are inside parking garages. In addition, some are only available for one brand — several on the UWS are only for Teslas, for instance. The U.S. Department of Energy has a map of charging stations in each neighborhood. The new curbside charging stations would take up six parking spots.
“The chargers will be in place for four years as part of a demonstration project, which will include an evaluation,” the committee agenda says.
Electric vehicle charging stations are part of New York’s ambitious climate goals.
Con Edison is looking at five areas for potential spots to add the stations, according to the Community Board 7 Transportation committee.
|W. 93rd Street||Central Park West||Columbus Avenue|
|West End Ave (east side curb)||W. 66th Street||W. 70th Street|
|Amsterdam Avenue (east side curb)||W. 66th Street||W. 67th Street|
|W. 86th Street||West End Ave||Riverside Drive|
|W. 64th Street||Amsterdam Avenue||West End Ave|
The meeting will take place on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at 250 West 87th Street. The items below are also on the agenda.
