USA: Six American States Make EV Push

Six American states are collaborating to promote electric vehicle (EV) ownership. The New York Times reports that California and New York are leading the effort 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…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—represent more than 25 percent of the United States’ automobile market. One of the goals is to develop charging stations that take the same form of payment and to cut red tape so that charging stations can be installed at office buildings, multifamily residences, and other central locations.

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.
