Plug-In Electric Vehicle Readiness Scorecard

The Plug-In Electric Vehicle Readiness Scorecard helps communities assess their readiness for the arrival of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE).

PEVs are an exciting new transportation option that has the potential to benefit a community’s economy, energy security, and environment. As local and regional leaders know, PEV readiness is a community-wide effort, requiring charging infrastructure, planning, regulations, and support services. This scorecard supports these efforts by helping leaders in cities, counties, and larger regions:

  • Evaluate a community’s PEV readiness
  • Receive feedback about strengths and offer ways to improve
  • Record and track progress toward PEV readiness.
