EV readiness

 

Cities were evaluated across the following criteria:

  • Utility rates that encourage “off-peak” charging;
  • Streamlined permitting and inspection processes, to speed up the development of necessary infrastructure;
  • Advisory committees that help communities deal with electric vehicle issues;
  • Urban planning to optimize locations for chargers;
  • Incentives to offset customers’ costs for installing required hardware;
  • Other city- or region wide programs that encourage EV use.
