The United States is admirably serious and consistent with its goal of sustainable growth. The American Jobs Plan recommends developing 500,000 public chargers by 2030 to encourage more and more people to switch to electric cars. According to the American Community Survey last 2019, approximately 36% of Americans rent, while 32% live in multifamily homes. They do not have the capacity to build home EV chargers. This group will largely benefit from the proposal once enforced.
As we turn into the era of transportation innovation, we aim to share the technology with as many people as possible. A survey from the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) revealed that the question the people usually ask EV car dealers isn’t about the car itself, but about charging. The interest in the people is there. We just need the government’s vision to materialize. With the continuous support of EV units and public chargers, we are creating a whole new sustainable environment that will not only save us on cost but will also save the world from air pollution and other environmental degradation.
In this article featured in the Center for Sustainable Energy, we learn of the initiatives for a cleaner and greener future that can take off through investing in EV charging infrastructures. In the article, they write “We need to act quickly to encourage the development of public EV charging stations because studies suggest infrastructure should be available two years before the EVs are on the road. With automakers expected to roll out over two dozen new models of electric cars and trucks over the next two years, we’ve got to move quickly to ensure sufficient public charging is available.”
