Palo Alto Officials Propose Electric Car Readiness Measure – EVWORLD.COM

Under the set of proposals, all new homes constructed in the California community would be required to have the necessary electric circuitry built into the home for connecting a electric car charger.

As Palo Alto revs up for a celebration for electric vehicles later this month, a trio of council members are calling for the city to consider a new law that would require every new house to include charger-friendly infrastructure.

In a memo unveiled Wednesday evening, Mayor Greg Scharff, Vice Mayor Nancy Shepherd and Councilmember Gail Price are recommending a package of laws that they hope will further bolster the city’s reputation as a national leader in green technology. These include making sure all new houses have the necessary circuitry to support electric-vehicle chargers and streamlining the permitting process for charging stations. The council members are also requesting that the council and staff explore new laws that would make sure all new hotels install charging stations and that may require existing hotels to install them.

The council members are also requesting that the council and staff explore new laws that would make sure all new hotels install charging stations and that may require existing hotels to install them.

The proposal from the three council members seeks to add another spark to the city’s already robust electric-vehicle culture. Home to Tesla Motors and Prius-congested roads, Palo Alto has seen charging stations bloom in all parts of the city in recent years, including at city garages and Mollie Stone’s Market. Residents are also installing them in their homes and, at least in one case, in front of a residential curb.
