Atlanta Passes Electric Vehicle Readiness Ordinance
December 12, 2017
The City of Atlanta has passed an ordinance that will require new residential and commercial construction to include Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) infrastructure for future use. This ordinance applies to new off road parking, expansion of existing off-road parking AND single family homes.
This new ordinance requires that 20% of parking spaces in new commercial and multifamily structures be "EV ready." Another requirement is that all new single family homes be equipped with the infrastructure to accommodate future EV charging stations (conduit, wiring and electrical capacity).
According to the City of Atlanta, over 30% of vehicles on the road will be EV by 2040. This is an effort to be prepared early and to reduce back end cost of installing EVSE.
