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. 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. It is a comprehensive approach with specific recommendations based on local electric vehicle (EV) initiatives we have compiled of effective policies from around the country with links to real-world examples. The objective is not to suggest that every city must implement all of these policy recommendations. We encourage public officials to use this catalog as a menu of options to best fit the needs of their communities as they develop their action plans.
