Electric Vehicle (EV) Workgroup

Electric Vehicle (EV) Workgroup

EV programs are garnering strong support from local governments, utilities, and federal-level entities in the form of new EV-directed policies and funding opportunities. In the summer of 2021, members of the SCN Solar & Energy Efficiency (SEE) Workgroup formed the Electric Vehicle (EV) Workgroup to facilitate and coordinate EV discussions and actions for SCN-engaged communities and stakeholders.

The EV Workgroup educates and supports Arizona cities in their adoption of EV goals and policy efforts; including support in increasing EV adoption strategies for the public and municipal fleets; increasing the EV charging installations practices and procedures; implementing EV Ready building codes; identifying strategies for EV Equity policies and principles; and developing education and outreach campaigns and strategies. The EV Workgroup supports cities, towns, counties, and tribal nations with established EV programs and those that are just starting to explore how to work EVs into their plans to reduce carbon emissions and improve local air quality as well. The EV Workgroup also collaborates on ideas, exchanges information, and is a central repository for documents, presentations, and research materials.

Workgroup purpose

The purpose of the EV Workgroup is to educate and support Arizona cities in their adoption of EV goals and policy efforts.
