FLO and ChargerHelp!, along with Senate Energy and Telecommunications Committee Chairman Kevin Parker (D—District 21) and Assemblyman Brian Cunningham (D–District 43) announced the EV Charging Reliability Transparency Act to ensure New York’s EV drivers have access to reliable charging stations.

S.5120A/A.1721A, introduced in the New York State Senate (with a companion bill in the State Assembly), will require the disclosure of reliability data for all public and ratepayer-funded EV charging stations deployed across New York. Over the next few years, New York is expected to incentivize EV charging infrastructure deployment to the tune of nearly $1- billion through a combination of state programs and funding secured through the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

Eliminating recharging concerns

“New York EV drivers know the frustration of pulling up to a charging station only to find that it is out of order, but today is the first step in eliminating that concern. This bill will help safeguard critical investments being made in EV charging infrastructure by establishing reliability standards that put the EV driver first,” said Daniel Bloom, FLO Public Affairs Manager. “Thanks to the support of Chairman Parker and Assemblyman Cunningham in our efforts to improve the overall EV experience and accelerate EV adoption.”

Ensuring charger reliability has never been more important. A record 71% of American drivers are reportedly interested in owning an EV. Unfortunately, access to reliable charging infrastructure has become a growing concern. Recent data show an increasing number of drivers have trouble accessing public EV charging stations, with broken chargers cited as the most common issue.

FLO and ChargerHelp! continue to work together to resolve this problem, sponsoring similar legislation in California. The legislation, the first of its kind in the United States, was signed into law last year to help policymakers and the public understand the performance of California’s investments in EV infrastructure and inequities in driver access to reliable charging stations.

“As New York continues to implement the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), it is critical that EV chargers are maintained operational and deliver outstanding reliability for all communities, at all times,” said Kameale C. Terry, CEO at ChargerHelp!.
