This study produced by the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC) with an objective of helping the region increase transportation options, reduce fossil fuel emissions, and improve transportation infrastructure by identifying means to improving supports for the use of electric vehicles for area residents. This report provides a background for the local and global need to reduce greenhouse gases, confirms how the use of electric vehicles is one step towards this goal, and reports the number of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure in the TJPDC region. The final sections explore factors that affect EV adoption and use, and shares examples other communities use to support the growth of EV use.
