FLO with the Edison Department of Transportation and Consolidation to build roadside chargers throughout New York City.

This partnership is set as a strong sustainability goal, and aims to encourage EV adoption as a means to reduce greenhouse emissions and improve air quality.

FLO has been installing its EV charging station since June 2021, and now they are installing their 100th charger, located on Staten Island, making roadside charging available in all 5 territories.

Placing EV chargers throughout the city is a vision of FLO themselves, where they think that chargers should be available when needed.

“Every charging station is a promise. A charger must always be available when needed, and that’s why we’re committed to delivering industry-leading uptime rates, where our goal is to achieve a 98% uptime,” said Martin Briere, Chief Network and Experience Officer at FLO quoted from InsideEVs.

FLO believes that roadside charging is an essential element in making electric vehicles accessible to everyone, everywhere.

Currently FLO has more than 65,000 charging stations in its network. When the first stations were installed in NYC, there were 15,000 electric vehicles registered in NYC, but there were only 1,400 Level 2 stations mostly in Manhattan parking garages.

The FLO charger can deliver an 80 percent charge in about four to eight hours, depending on the vehicle.

With this capability, the FLO charges $2.50 per hour between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m., and drops to $1.00 an hour overnight.

A 2018 study by the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute found that the average cost to fuel electric cars is less than gas-powered vehicles at $485 per year, compared to $1,117.
