Blink Charging Co. BLNK shares traded higher on Thursday after the company announced it had secured a contract as an official EV charging provider for the state of New York. 

Under the deal, Blink Charging and New York joined forces to electrify state and municipal fleets and provide public charging solutions for employees, residents, and visitors.

“It’s rewarding to have a direct role in reducing emissions while enhancing the EV driver experience in New York. We are grateful for the state’s trust and our shared vision,” states Jim Nemec, Chief Revenue Officer at Blink Charging.

Blink will supply the state with its cutting-edge electric vehicle charging stations, encompassing Level 2 and DC fast chargers. Furthermore, Blink will extend associated services, including site evaluation, setup, upkeep, repairs, parts, warranties, and training.
