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 is currently working on a Buyer's Guide to Driving Electric in Vermont's Upper Valley. This guide will de-mystify the EV buying process of applying for rebates and incentives, explain the differences between types of electric vehicle and provide additional resources to help residents of Vermont's Upper Valley transition to a clean driving vehicle. The guide is scheduled to be published online and in print in May of 2022.
