USA: Northeast, mid-Atlantic states form regional network to promote electric vehicles

By Associated Press, Updated: Wednesday, October 19, 2:12 PM
BALTIMORE — Ten states from Massachusetts to Maryland are joining forces to promote electric vehicles.

The Northeast Electric Vehicle Network announced Wednesday it will work to help plan and install charging stations throughout the region as well as attract private investment in clean vehicle infrastructure.

Among the things network members will work on: the location of charging stations. Placing charging stations at commuter rail stations, for example, would allow commuters to park and plug, said Vicki Arroyo, executive director of the Georgetown Climate Center.

“You can have almost a zero emissions experience if you drive your electric vehicle to a train station and plug in while you go into town from there,” Arroyo said.

The network also will look into making sure car owners can upgrade the plugs in their garage with ease and will tackle other permitting issues, said Colin O’Mara, Delaware’s secretary of Energy and Environment.
