The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) has established goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector and increase the energy efficiency of Vermont’s motor vehicle fleet. This is an important factor in realizing energy efficiency improvements and greenhouse gas reductions detailed in the 2013 Chittenden County ECOS Plan1 and the Chittenden County Climate Action guide; as well as climate action and energy plans across all levels of government in Vermont. The Chittenden County Climate Action guide prioritizes the promotion of electric vehicle infrastructure for electric vehicle charging as a key action to meeting greenhouse gas reduction targets established by the State legislature. Electric vehicle (EV) technology supports these goals by providing low carbon, highly efficient and cost effective transportation.
The technology, data and costs documented in this guide reflect the most current information available at the time of publication. However, potential owners and installers of charging equipment should expect the information and recommendations in this guide will change as the EV industry matures.
