In November 2017, the Atlanta City Council unanimously passed ordinance 17-0-1654 in an effort to increase electric vehicle (EV) readiness and adoption. The ordinance implements construction policies that make new commercial and residential properties more supportive of EV adoption.
As an emerging technology, EV adoption can be slowed by the lack of charging infrastructure at commercial and residential locations. Policies that reduce costs and expand charging infrastructure have the potential to boost EV awareness and adoption.
