Driven by a need to reduce greenhouse gases and other pollutants and to decrease reliance on imported petroleum, the paradigm shift to Electric Vehicles is taking shape. With the inherent changes moving to electrification, local governments are in the unique position of being responsible for ensuring the safety and compliance of the people in and around their communities, and also need to make decisions for the municipality’s operations.
As part of collaborative project with the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus Becoming EV Ready Program, this document has been developed by Green Ways 2Go to support local governments for making informed decisions as we move into this new transportation paradigm. This Guide endeavors to answer the myriad of questions that are inevitably raised while considering the various perspectives of local governments, including EV and EV charging purchasing, planning, project specification and more.
The EV Readiness Checklist is part of collaborative project with the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus’ Becoming EV Ready Program and is intended to help local governments get ready for the future electrification of transportation.
This comprehensive list broadly considers municipal jurisdiction and influences in the advancement of electric vehicles (EV) and electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Municipalities may use this checklist for planning and to guide actions towards EV readiness.
The recommended actions will support municipalities in developing and implementing safe and effective policies and practices for EV charging and support of the overall market. The Checklist focuses on areas of municipal authority and influence. It is expected that each community will review and consider those ideas that best fit their respective communities, budgets and timelines. It is not necessary to complete all of the actions to be EV Ready, but rather the intent is to provide ideas to consider short and longer term. Actions are not prioritized, and specific solutions, tools and examples are not yet available
Ideas for calculating all in factors with alternative fuel vehicles, infrastructure, incentives, time value of money and more.
Details the range of decision factors related to planning through installing EV Charging Stations and supporting electrical infrastructure in MUDs, including identifying current EV charging capacity for retrofit installations and planning requirements for expanding capacity over time for existing or new construction, plus costing and cost sharing, EV charging station decisions, billing and electricity metering, and more.
