Electric Vehicle Resource Kit for Municipalities

Since tailpipe emissions from traditional cars and trucks are a large source of air pollutants that harm human health and carbon emissions that worsen climate change, increasing adoption of electric vehicles is a key strategy for decarbonizing our region’s transportation system. In order to help prepare our region for the growing number of electric vehicles, DVRPC has compiled this resource kit for municipal leaders that covers electric vehicle terminology, funding opportunities, and municipal best practice documents.
