New York to invest $750 million to expand electric-vehicle infrastructure

Governor Cuomo announced Thursday an allocation of $701M through 2025 to build more than 50,000 charging stations and other electric-vehicle infrastructure in a push to reduce carbon emission in the state. An additional $48.8M is allocated from a 2017 settlement with Volkswagen over its diesel emissions cheating scandal to fund electric school and transit buses, as well as charging stations.

Before we get around to speculating where the money is coming from - It will "largely be funded by the state’s investor-owned utility companies" and "an additional $48.8 million is allocated from a 2017 settlement with German carmaker Volkswagen." Why can't moving to cleaner energy be a goal in this pandemic when everything else is already being played out as it is?
