POLICIES FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TO ACCELERATE ELECTRIC VEHICLES
Electric vehicles can save money for our communities, promote public health, and protect our coasts by offsetting the need for new offshore drilling. Today, there are light, medium and heavy duty electric vehicle (EV) options for fleets and consumers. This toolkit is a catalog of local policies that can be enacted to facilitate the transition to electric vehicles in an effective, sustainable, and equitable way. These specific recommendations are based on effective EV policies from around the country with links to real-world examples. Rather than suggesting that cities must implement all of these policy recommendations, this toolkit is provided as a catalog of options for public officials to choose from while developing their community action plans.
*This toolkit is a living document that is updated regularly.
