Curbside Charging
New York City Public Charging

FLO is partnering with the City of New York, the Department of Transportation (NYC DOT), and Con Edison to expand access to EV curbside chargers by deploying more than 100 charging stations across the Big Apple.

Benefits of curbside charging stations:

  • Increase the value and attractiveness of residential buildings
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improve the air quality and health of the community
  • Provide a valuable amenity to the many residents in need of a charge
The FLO mobile map

The free FLO mobile app for iOS and Android is the quickest way to start using the FLO Network. The app makes it easy for members to manage your FLO experience wherever you are, using only your smartphone. Use the app to:

  • locate charging stations,
  • pay for charging sessions,
  • and to consult usage data.
Curbside Level 2 charging stations

As EV adoption grows, New Yorkers will enjoy reduced toxic tailpipe emissions that contribute to smog and climate change, improving the health of our communities, the air, and the environment. EVs are an important part of achieving New York City’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050.

EV Charging FAQs
Frequently asked questions

Find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about electric vehicle charging in New York City and how the FLO network charging stations work.

Are these charging stations compatible with any electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle on the market?

Yes, FLO’s level 2 curbside chargers are compatible with all electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles currently on the market. Tesla vehicles can also be charged on a FLO charger, although an adapter (provided with all Tesla vehicle purchases) will be required in order to fit the charging socket.

Can anyone use a FLO charging station?

Yes, of course. The easiest way is to become a FLO member, by creating a free account here. The FLO network also has multiple agreements with other network providers. Members of partner networks can therefore use any FLO charging station with their existing membership.

Will the station still be accessible even when there is snow build-up on the curb?

The charging station’s cable is 25 feet long, with an integrated cable management system that inhibits the cable from touching the ground and being covered by snow. Therefore, even if a large snowbank is between the street and the charging station, the cable will still be long enough to reach both sides of the car at all times.

What happens if the station is damaged by a vehicle collision?

FLO charging stations are known for their durability and robustness. In the rare event of a vehicle collision, stations are equipped with both mechanical and electrical breakaway systems. This means that if the station is damaged internally, all electric components will stop conducting current immediately, and the network administrator will be notified automatically in order to ensure maintenance or a replacement can be provided. In addition, the station is built in such a way that a station will also fall on the incoming vehicle, instead of on street pedestrians.

Will the station still work in very high and very low temperatures?

FLO’s charging stations are made to withstand temperatures between -40 and 122 degrees Fahrenheit. Although the station’s components may become hot or cold to the touch, all components will continue to function, and the cable will remain flexible. In addition, rain, ice, sleet, and snow will in no way affect station function.
