What Cities Can Do to Encourage Electric Cars
Blackman lists the types of things local governments should be working on:
"* Expanded electric grids, public charging stations, and special high-voltage home charging docks will all be needed.
* States, cities and utilities will need to work together to find where neighborhood clusters of electric cars are likely to be purchased that could strain the power supply.
* And, of course, building codes and zoning regulations may need to change, as offices and public garages build charging stations, and homeowners outfit their property to accommodate charging docks."
