Áreas comunitarias desfavorecidas de PowerReady

Los solicitantes elegibles pueden obtener incentivos que cubran hasta el 100 % de los costos de la empresa de energía y del cliente por instalar estaciones de cargadores eléctricos rápidos de nivel 2 o de corriente directa en áreas designadas como "comunidad desfavorecida" en la ciudad de Nueva York y Westchester.

Disadvantaged communities (DAC) bear disproportionate burdens of the impacts of climate change and possess certain socioeconomic criteria or comprise high concentrations of low- and moderate-income households.

This definition was adopted by the Climate Justice Working Group (CJWG) under the direction of the Climate Leadership Community Protection Act’s (CLCPA), on March 27, 2023. An updated map reflecting the CJWG’s final definition is available via New York State’s CJWG website and on this page.

Projects benefiting DAC are defined by location, setting (e.g., curbside or at a multi-unit dwelling (MUD)), by program (e.g., PowerReady, Micromobility, and Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicle), and/or by plug type

PowerReady:

  • DCFC Public Chargers: Located within a DAC and publicly accessible.
  • L2 Public Curbside Chargers: Located on the curb, within or adjacent to a DAC and publicly accessible.
  • L2 Chargers at MUDs: Parking garages and lots at apartment buildings with five or more units anywhere in Con Edison’s service territory where 25% of units are at, or below, 80% of state median income or area median income (AMI), whichever is higher. The AMI data source is the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Micromobility:

  • Publicly accessible chargers located within a DAC.
  • Chargers located in, or adjacent to, an eligible multi-unit dwelling. Eligible multi-unit dwellings are apartment buildings with five or more units anywhere in the service territory where 25% of units are at, or below, 80% of state median income or area median income (AMI), whichever is higher.

Medium-and Heavy-Duty Vehicle (MHDV) Pilot Program:

  • Private chargers located outside of a DAC and participating in one of four eligible voucher programs may receive incentives for up to 90% of utility-side costs. Eligible voucher programs include NYSERDA’s New York Truck Voucher Incentive Program, the New York City Department of Transportation New York City Clean Trucks Program, NYSERDA’s New York School Bus Incentive Program, and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) vehicle incentives with a DAC requirement (such as the Clean Bus Program). Additional eligible Voucher Incentive Programs may be added as authorized by the Commission.
  • Publicly accessible chargers located within a DAC, as well as private chargers that are both located in a DAC and participating in one of the voucher programs listed above, may receive enhanced incentives for up to 50% customer-side costs and up to 90% utility-side costs. Publicly accessible chargers do not need to participate in a voucher program to be eligible.
