EVUIS    Electric Vehicle Urban Infrastructure Study
 
 
 
MISSION:To fulfill the electric vehicle’s future promise to power the coming green economies and preserve the environment.

PREMISE:City residents are disadvantaged to own and operate their own electric vehicles.

REASON:Generally city residents do not have easy access to electrical outlets where they must park their personal vehicles.

SCOPE:Hundreds of thousands of city residents own personal vehicles that they park in the city relatively near to where they live.

IMPACT:City air quality, global greenhouse gas emissions, reduction of Americas dependency on foreign and domestic oil, and the financial exclusion of market to electric vehicle manufactures will be significantly hurt by denial of public urban EV charging capability.

LOGIC:The time of great energy paradigm change has begun. Sustainable pollution free energy technology is evolving and being embraced around the world. The transition from existing exhaustible and polluting energy sources will challenge the established industries, businesses, and governments that are so vested and dependent on it. Because this transition requires a complex and far reaching effort there will be much resistance to it.

OBJECTIVE: Cities need to develop a comprehensive plan to provide the public (residents, workers, other out of towners, etc.) with the necessary electric vehicle infrastructure needed in the coming years. A multi-disciplined study involving elected officials, government offices, utility professionals, industry experts, business and community leaders is warranted based on the complexity of the task.
 
Because there are so many questions to be identified, answered and addressed, a study needs to be done before any comprehensive plan can begin. Such a study can and will help lead cities to identify the aspects particular to each city making it easier and more economical to create specifications to bid out, select and have implemented the hardware and software installation of the needed city EV Urban Infrastructure. EV Infrastructure Working Committee (EV-IWC) need to be created to work with City, State and Federal elected officials and government departments to develop a comprehensive city Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan.
 
We need everyone concerned to participate as the work starts out with community leaders, businesses, and the City, State, and Federal government representatives to evaluate, design, develop, implement and manage this complex, yet critical, part of our future. Please support the creation of EV related jobs, businesses, and remove the obstacles to residents in our cities and towns that are being inhibited or prevented from owning an Electric Vehicle due to the absence or inadequacy of charging infrastructure.

Electric Vehicle Charger types are Conductive and Inductive in a variety of cord and plug or paddle configurations. These chargers can be Dumb, Smart, or Smart Grid capable.
 
There are 3 levels of EV charging - Level 1  (110V and 15A), Level 2 (220V, 15A). Fast-charging Level 3 (480V)
