I'm all for greener infrastructure, but doubling the amount of electric parking spots (20% to 40% in NYC garages and lots) will not be the answer to reducing the city's carbon footprint. Forcing the market's hand will not work and we will end up with an expensive waste of space. Adding more electric charging stations won't convert gas guzzlers to electric. If anybody were to convert to the electric car, it would be people already driving small compact cars or hybrids, so progress would be moot. If 44% of the city's 2030 greenhouse gas emissions will come from the transportation sector, it would be wiser and more effective to invest in a more impactful, guaranteed solution. Rather than outfitting and retrofitting parking lots/garages with wires and plugs (I can only imagine that this process is an environmental waste in itself), we should use the money to invest in our existing subway, VRT, bike lanes, and bus systems.
