TCI States Release Stakeholder Pledge to Demonstrate Deep Support for EVs

Support for electric vehicles in the northeast continues to grow, and states participating in the Northeast Electric Vehicle Network are forging ahead with preparations for the mass market arrival of plug-in cars and trucks and the economic and environmental benefits that these vehicles can deliver.

Under a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, northeastern states are working with stakeholders to build support for electric vehicles and remove barriers to the widespread deployment of EVs.  Most recently, participating states released an electric vehicle support pledge to continue building momentum and to demonstrate broad and deep support for electric vehicles in the region.  Collecting pledges will also enable TCI to highlight the good work that many organizations are already undertaking to promote electric vehicles. 

If you haven't already done so, we encourage your company or organization to sign the pledge, which can be downloaded here.  

Pledges may be returned to Cassie Powers ( with the Georgetown Climate Center, which facilitates the TCI at the direction of participating states.  Questions about the pledge may also be directed to Ms. Powers.
