EV Policy at Work

Charging Electric Vehicles in the Workplace

CC_MSRC_logos3Western Washington Clean Cities and MRSC of Washington

hosted a half-day workshop on Friday, October 17, to explore the answers to these and other electric vehicle policy questions.

 

Thinking about offering electric vehicle charging at your workplace?

Aside from installing the infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs), providing access to EV-charging at work presents numerous policy considerations, including:

  • Does an employer need a policy for EV-charging at the workplace?
  • What makes an effective workplace EV-charging policy?
  • What are the legal considerations of providing workplace charging?
  • How does EV energy use affect building benchmark and sustainability goals?
