Researchers at North Carolina State University have created a computer system that shows where electric vehicle drivers will need to recharge and where places are to support the electric demand.
A proposed bill would institute a sales tax rebate for the purchase of new electric vehicles. However, it may also allow companies to charge customers for the costs of building charging stations.
The state saw 13,626 new electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle registrations in the first three months of the year, placing it third nationally. But sales numbers are still well below pre-pandemic levels.
Silicon Valley’s electric grid was built around household energy needs from more than 50 years ago, making it incapable of supporting the region’s switch to electric dependency as a way to offset greenhouse gas emissions.
State and local officials have promised the electric vehicle maker free land, a state-owned training center, a new interchange along I-20 and tax breaks in exchange for a local factory that would create 7,500 jobs.

A report from the American Lung Association found that New Hampshire could save $3.9 billion in public health benefits and prevent 356 premature deaths by switching to EVs and clean energy by 2050.
As gas prices increase, supply chains are delayed and the auto industry moves toward all-electric options, it’s not always clear when or if the long-term savings will outweigh the upfront costs of an EV or hybrid vehicle.

As states develop electric vehicle public charging plans for federal approval, expect to see more collaborations among data analysts, utilities, transportation equity groups and neighboring states.
Studies show that communities of color inhale disproportionate amounts of vehicle pollution compared to white communities. Equitable development of electric vehicle charging stations could change that.
There are approximately 58,000 electric vehicles in Florida but there are only 954 public-access charging stations. As the network grows, utilities and gas stations are competing for charging station rights.
The nation is pivoting towards electric vehicles as a more climate-friendly alternative to gas-powered vehicles. Some worry about the chance that in the future millions of EV batteries will end up in a landfill.
