EV Charging Ordinance

* Please pass the EV charging ordinance tonight.


* Passenger vehicles are the single biggest source of carbon emissions
and air pollution in California.


* To meet our city's and the state's climate goals and the Paris
Climate Accord and keep our planet habitable, we must move from gasoline
cars to clean alternatives like electric vehicles as quickly as possible.


* Our city is a leader in EV adoption; Menlo Park's new EV adoption
rate is 18% a year and growing fast. We can set an example for the country
by continuing to increase EV adoption rates.


* People in apartments don't drive EVs because they have nowhere to
charge them. Requiring more EV charging in new construction will encourage
further EV adoption.


* Please help us breathe cleaner air and promote a healthier climate
by passing the EV ordinance.


I recently purchased an ev for my commute and installed a charger. It has
been an amazing car making a significant impact on carbon footprint.
