This analysis evaluates the total need for electric vehicle charging infrastructure—including private chargers at vehicle owners’ homes and publicly accessible chargers—to accommodate plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) in the twelve largest utility service territories in the states of California, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. These states were chosen to be fairly representative of needs across the U.S. and to identify regional differences. These twelve utilities serve 60 percent of the residential customers in these seven states—41.8 million customers, with nearly 80 million vehicles.
This study was conducted by M.J. Bradley & Associates for Ceres and was funded primarily through a generous grant from the Energy Foundation.
