PANYNJ’s ambitious procurement goals have the agency on track to own 100-percent electric light-duty vehicles by 2030 and 50-percent electric medium- and heavy-duty vehicles by 2035.

The study produced recommendations on charging infrastructure locations, technology solutions, site-specific design approaches, and initial cost estimates.
Fleet electrification is an important part of PANYNJ’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In 2021, PANYNJ adopted a plan to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 across all facilities.
