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.

The new charging station is located in the garage of the historic Dime building at 260 S 4th St., Brooklyn, where Revel recently moved its corporate headquarters. Like Revel's flagship Superhub in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, the South Williamsburg Superhub will be open to the public 24/7, have no entry fee and be accessible to any brand EV.

"New York City is plugging into a cleaner, greener future," said 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."

"New Yorkers want to go electric, many already have, but before EVs can become the main way we get around on four-wheels, we need more places to get a quick and reliable charge. Before this year, the outlook for significant new EV infrastructure was not optimistic. I'm proud to say that's no longer the case," said Frank Reig, CEO & Co-Founder of Revel.

"Revel is not just changing the landscape of public fast charging in the city, with the South Williamsburg Superhub and more sites coming over the next year, we're creating it. Thank you Mayor Adams, Congresswoman Velazquez and the many other public leaders who are making the electrification mission possible."

Revel is building public fast charging stations where they can have the greatest positive impact on New York's EV adoption, especially in the for-hire-vehicle industry. Four in five for-hire vehicle drivers live in the outer boroughs with scarce access to public EV charging. As Mayor Eric Adams works toward his administration's goal to electrify all rideshare trips by 2030, Revel is committed to providing the foundational infrastructure, jobs and services to help make it possible. Currently, Revel employs over 930 New Yorkers, 730 who are TLC-licensed employee drivers operating Revel's all-electric rideshare fleet.

The South Williamsburg Superhub is the first of Revel's new Superhubs to complete development amid its larger charging network expansion. In January 2023, Revel announced plans to triple public access to fast charging in New York City. 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, Brooklyn, the "Red Hook Recharge Zone," which will have vehicle-to-grid technology and solar+storage to support local grid resiliency. 

Revel's South Williamsburg Superhub will contribute to the company's efforts to strengthen New York City's grid. Revel's all-electric rideshare fleet will participate in managed charging at the new site, charging during off-peak hours for the grid. It will also participate in demand response, incentivizing EV users to charge their vehicles outside of periods with the highest demand on the grid.
