Pioneering U.S. employers are accepting the EV Everywhere Workplace Charging Challenge, committing to install charging for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) at their worksites. By taking on this Challenge, they are helping build our nation’s PEV charging infrastructure and offering a valuable employee benefit. A full transition to electric-drive vehicles (including all-electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and hybrid electric vehicles) could reduce U.S. dependence on imported petroleum by more than 80% and greenhouse gas emissions by more than 60%. Increasing the convenience of owning and driving PEVs, such as by increasing charging available in the workplace, is essential to making that transition.
