Clean Cities Publishes Electric Vehicle Handbooks for Charging Station Hosts and Electrical Contractors
May 10, 2012
A new generation of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) is hitting the road, and Clean Cities is helping communities take full advantage of their potential to stimulate local economies, reduce petroleum use, and cut emissions.
The newly published Clean Cities PEV Handbook for Public Charging Station Hosts provides information on charging equipment, installation considerations, station design, payment models, and more.
Also just released, the Clean Cities PEV Handbook for Electrical Contractors gives an overview of residential and public charging equipment, installation and inspection processes, site assessment, and worker training opportunities.
Both guides direct contractors and potential station hosts to an array of resources and information that can help them successfully tap into this new market.
Available on the Clean Cities Publications page, these 20-page guides are part of a series of Clean Cities PEV handbooks, each tailored to meet the needs of one of four key stakeholders in PEV deployment: consumers, fleet managers, public charging station hosts, and electrical contractors.
