Subject: Co-Sponsorship: Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure in New Non-Residential Construction
 
Ensuring a clean and healthy future by reducing our dependence on fossil fuels can wait no longer. To that end, encouraging consumers to embrace clean, emission-free electric vehicles (EVs) begins with supplying the infrastructure to support this technology.

I am proposing legislation requiring new non-residential buildings in the Commonwealth to be constructed with the necessary infrastructure to support EV charging stations, ensuring the availability to charge EVs in places consumers frequent most, such as retail facilities, hotels, schools and restaurants.

Knowing EV charging stations are available along frequented routes and locations raises consumer confidence in EV technology, an ever-growing sector.

Please join me in taking this crucial step in support of clean technology in Pennsylvania. If you have any questions, please contact my Harrisburg Office at (717) 783-4088.



Introduced as HB1908
