Accelerating Electric Vehicle Readiness: How Cities and Towns Can Prepare for the Electrification of Transportation
The electrification of personal vehicles is underway. Municipalities must take action now to both accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) by their citizens and to prepare for the inevitable market shift and make the transition as easy as possible for all parties.
Led by IEE’s Jenny Carter and assisted by Molly Smith, the Clean Transportation Team researched and compiled the Buyer's Guide to Driving Electric in Vermont's Upper Valley. This guide de-mystifies the EV buying process of applying for rebates and incentives, explains the differences between types of electric vehicle and provides additional resources to help residents of Vermont's Upper Valley transition to a clean driving vehicle. The guide was published in June, 2022 and is available online HERE. There are limited copies in print and copies are first come first served. To request a physical copy of the guide, please write to Molly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
