City invites residents to take electric vehicle community survey

City of Piedmont staff report

Area where four EV chargers will be installed on Magnolia Ave

Do you currently drive an Electric Vehicle (EV)? Are you considering purchasing or leasing an EV? Where would you like to see EV chargers in Piedmont?

The city’s sustainability division wants your feedback on EVs and EV charging in Piedmont. All Piedmonters are invited to share their input and suggestions through an online EV community survey HERE.

We anticipate the survey will take ten to twenty minutes to complete. All questions are optional, and your responses will remain anonymous. The survey will be open until Friday, November 26. Your responses will shape the EV priorities and actions our community will take in the coming years to address climate change and build a more resilient community.

The city of Piedmont’s Climate Action Plan 2.0 provides a roadmap for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the community. A major goal of the plan is to eliminate emissions from the transportation sector, which has consistently comprised nearly half of Piedmont’s total GHG emissions. One strategy to achieve this is by accelerating the adoption of EVs and the growth of EV charging stations in Piedmont.

The city has an ambitious target of 50% EV ownership by 2030 and 100% EV ownership by 2050. Currently, EVs account for 11% of the vehicles registered in Piedmont. The city does not have any public EV charging stations currently installed; however, during their October 18 meeting, the City Council approved an agreement for the installation of four DC fast EV charging stations on Magnolia Avenue near the Exedra. Please help the sustainability team identify where to prioritize the installation of the next group of EV chargers.
