Making Electric Vehicle Charging More Equitable Is Key to Our Clean Vehicle Future
Most of the nation’s public chargers remain clustered in areas where wealthy, predominantly white, early EV adopters live. That’s not altogether surprising, given charging station developers went where there was demand.
But this has also created areas with little to no public charging access that often fall along racial and socioeconomic lines.
To meet our climate, equity, and air quality goals, America needs a national charging system that is accessible to all, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council.
