EV Infrastructure: City of Auburn Hills "Aha Moment"

I recently wrote an article on Auburn Hill's 2011 electric vehicle ordinance, called "EV Infrastructure: Inside The Belly of the Beast” that appeared on Inside EVs last week and included below is an audio excerpt of that interview that did not make the article.

The interview is with Steve Cohen, Dir. of Community Development, City of Auburn Hills and Ron Melchert, Director of Public Works, City of Auburn Hills.

Back in 2011, the City of Auburn Hills (a suburb of Detroit) was the first municipality in Michigan to adopt a comprehensive Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Ordinance. The ordinance encourages, but does not require, developers, builders, homeowners and business owners to make Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) charging stations a regular part of construction.

In this excerpt, below, Steve talks about his "Aha" moment on why an electric vehicle charging ordinance should exist in Auburn Hills and why its justification is all about economics. Other topics include their involvement with the Department of Energy's Workplace Charging program
