Eight States Teaming up to Support Electric Cars
(Excerpted from a New York Times article; read the full article here.)
New York and six other states said on Thursday that they would work jointly to adopt a range of measures, including encouraging more charging stations and changing building codes, to make it easier to own an electric car. The goal, they said, was to achieve sales of at least 3.3 million vehicles that did not have any emissions by 2025.
 
The states (California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont), which represent more than a quarter of the national car market, said they would seek to develop charging stations that all took the same form of payment, simplify rules for installing chargers and set building codes and other regulations to require the stations at workplaces, multifamily residences and at other places.
 
They said they would also promote hydrogen fueling stations, presuming that fuel-cell cars become more widely available. And they said they would promote “time of use” electric rates that would allow charging at off-peak prices, and expand incentives like high-occupancy lane access and reduced tolls and preferential parking. The states also said they would buy electric cars for their own fleets, and in some cases encourage their municipalities to do the same.
 
“There’s much that states can do, and perhaps even more that local governments can do,” said Mary D. Nichols, the chairwoman of the California Air Resources Board and a longtime promoter of electric cars. In a telephone interview, she said that electric cars were “in the midst of a start-up,” and she predicted that they would “go viral.”
 
Deborah L. Markowitz, the secretary of Vermont’s Agency of Natural Resources, speaking in Sacramento, said the effort was “to move the market beyond early adopters,” meaning customers who were prone to buying new technologies, who do not represent average buyers.
 
The Northeast states have already been working together; one early result is a map [right] of the more than a thousand charging stations between Maine and the District of Columbia. Vicki Arroyo, the executive director of the Georgetown Climate Center at Georgetown University Law Center, said the group was working on uniform signage and more standard payment systems — the equivalent of an E-ZPass for electric charging.
 

 
ChargePoint Identifies Top EV Cities in the US

ChargePoint released a ranking of the best electric vehicle (EV) cities “based on the number of EVs owned as well as the number of public charging stations available on the ChargePoint network,” weighted by population. Here are the results, and you can read more about the ranking in the CleanTechnica article.
