The Brooklyn-based electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure and mobility company Revel just announced its second public EV fast charging station is now complete.
Mayor Eric Adams helped unveil the South Williamsburg Superhub on April 10, by performing the inaugural charge with one of Revel’s rideshare EVs. The new South Williamsburg Superhub has 15 public EV charging stalls capable of charging speeds of up to 150 kW, considered “ultrafast” charging — it is the largest ultrafast site anywhere in New York state.
“New York City is plugging into a cleaner, greener future,” said New York City Mayor Eric Adams.
“This station, the largest publicly accessible ultra-fast charging station in New York state, will help support the electrification of New York City’s Uber and Lyft fleet by 2030, as I announced in my State of the City address this year. Drivers want to drive electric vehicles, but New York City needs more chargers. Thanks to Revel, we are making it possible.”
The new charging station is located in the garage of the Dime building at 260 S 4th St., Brooklyn. It will be open to the public 24/7, have no entry fee and be accessible to any brand EV.
Within the next year, Revel will open three more Superhubs: A 60-stall site in Maspeth, Queens; a 30-stall site in the South Bronx, the first public fast charging station anywhere in that borough; and a 10-stall site in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
Revel will also open a 20-stall site in Red Hook called the “Red Hook Recharge Zone” which will have vehicle-to-grid technology and solar storage to support local grid resiliency.
“Public charging hubs, like Revel’s Superhub, play a crucial role in reducing transportation emissions and improving air quality in our communities," said Joy Gardner, executive director of Empire Clean Cities.
"Few New Yorkers have access to dedicated parking, so providing drivers with a convenient and reliable way to charge will encourage the transition away from fossil fuel-powered vehicles. We look forward to more accessible and affordable charging stations and celebrate this important step towards a cleaner and more sustainable future for all."
