Establish a working group of public and private stakeholders to develop a strategy to promote the use of Plug-in Electric Vehicles in the region.

  • Establish locations where infrastructure and/or battery switching stations are needed. Solar charging and other renewable options should be designated a priority to maximize emission reduction benefits and to improve the community's emergency management preparedness in times of power outages.
  • Develop policies to provide incentives for the deployment of infrastructure to complement transit oriented corridors. Preferred and/or reduced parking fees should be a consideration for riders accessing transit facilities by electric or other alternative fuel vehicles. Transit facilities should develop plans to establish electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
  • Work with relevant stakeholders to streamline permitting processes associated with charging equipment to encourage the safe and expeditious installation on customer premises and elsewhere.
  • Coordinate monetary and non-monetary incentives available to the general public and organizations purchasing electric vehicles.
  • Support regional efforts to establish a framework for siting/locating public electric vehicle charging stations.
