The electric vehicle revolution is well underway, with automakers increasing their lineup of EV offerings. While electric has plenty of supporters in the automotive, power, and charging industries, the issue of charging equity, or fair and equal access to charging, looms large.

As the EV market expands, however, equity will become a growing problem. 83% of vehicle owners who make under $50,000 per year don’t have dedicated access to EV charging at home. 39% of people in that income bracket expressed interest in buying an electric vehicle. 

EV owners who live in apartments may not always have an easy means to get their cars charged.

The U.S. government has earmarked more than $7.5 billion to invest in charging infrastructure. Most of this investment is earmarked to put chargers along major highway locations, which won’t address the equity issue.

The public charging infrastructure needs to expand and quickly. Sign the Earthgarage petition to demand your local municipality taken immediate steps.
