ZEV Policy in your Community

1.  
Plug-in EV (PEV) Purchase Incentives: According to NASEO and Cadmus, “numerous academic studies indicate vehicle purchase incentives play an important role in encouraging customer adoption of PEVs.” These policies encompass any policy that reduces the upfront cost of PEVs, through rebates, tax incentives, or other methods. The impact of this policy varies depending on its size, type and longevity of funding.

Is there an upfront incentive for buying/leasing a PEV in your jurisdiction?

What is the total dollar value of upfront incentives provided for buying/leasing an PEV?

What type of upfront incentive for buying/leasing a PEV?

What is the longevity of funding for the purchase incentive?

2.  
Long Term Market Signals: NASEO and Cadmus found that “policies in the “Sending a Long-term Signal to Market” section provide a publicly visible, long-term commitment to deploy PEVs—or complementary climate commitments with PEV components—in the form of mandates and targets.” This Policy Category is comprised of two Sub-Categories: (1) PEV Deployment Targets/Mandates and (2) Transportation Climate Policy.

Does your jurisdiction have PEV or ZEV deployment targets or mandates?

Are the targets mandatory?

Does your jurisdiction have Transportation Climate Policies that shift consumers toward lower emission products through market-based, technology-neutral approaches, such as clean fuel standards, feebates, vehicle emission standards, and other similar policies?

Please describe the policy in 2,500 characters or less and provide a web link to the policy home page.

3.  
Non-Financial Incentives: NASEO, Cadmus and other researchers have found that policies that create non-financial incentives, such as high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane access, privileges at airports, exclusive parking, or cutting lines at ferries can impact EV adoption, although there is a large range of findings in the literature about the impact of these policies, from no impact to strong impact.

Does your jurisdiction have policies that create a non-financial incentive?

Please describe the policy in 2,500 characters or less and provide a web link to the policy home page.

4.  
Electricity Rates: Utility rates can reduce the cost of operating EV charging stations. In particular, residential rates can reduce the cost of charging EVs at home. And commercial or special EV rates can reduce the cost of operating a public EV charging station, especially if those rates avoid high demand changes.

Does the utility in your jurisdiction offer EV specific rates that lower the cost of charging at home?

Does the utility in your jurisdiction offer EV specific rates that lower the demand charges associated with charging in public?

Please describe the utility rates in 2,500 characters or less and provide a web link to the policy home page.

5.  
Improving Economic Viability of Charging: NASEO and Cadmus identified policies that increase EV adoption by improving the economic viability of charging, either through direct incentives for EVSE installation or by helping the business case of EVSE. This Policy Category is comprised of two Sub-Categories: (1) EVSE Installation, and (2) EVSE Operation.

Is there an incentive for installing EV charging stations?

Is there an incentive for operating and maintaining EV charging stations?

Please describe the incentive in 2,500 characters or less and provide a web link to the policy home page

6.  
PEV-Ready Building Codes and Permitting Ordinances: PEV-ready building codes and ordinances or practices to expedite permitting prepare buildings and neighborhoods for PEV market growth and reduce costs of installation of EVSE in the future. A recent study by Rocky Mountain Institute found that soft costs, such as permitting, represent a major barrier to EV adoption.

Is there an EV-ready building code in place in your jurisdiction?

Is there a policy or ordinance to expedite EV charging station permitting?

Please describe the EV-ready building code and/or permitting ordinance in 2,500 characters or less and provide a web link to the policy home page.

7.  
ZEV Marketing and Communication: NASEO and Cadmus found that policies that increase the level of public awareness of ZEVs can impact ZEV adoption. Examples include promotional campaigns informing consumers of ZEV attributes, workplace charging programs, and ride-and-drive event programs.

Is there a ZEV marketing or communications program active in your jurisdiction?

Please describe the program in 2,500 characters or less and provide a web link to the policy home page.
