The primary purpose of the Electric Vehicle (EV) Access Program is to reduce carbon emissions and increase renewable energy usage in communities of concern through an increase in the adoption of electric vehicles. 

Other purposes of the Electric Vehicle Access Program are: 
  1. Demonstrate the cost-savings and environmental value of Electric Vehicles to LMI community members.
  2. Provide an opportunity for LMI families to establish or repair credit.
  3. Demonstrate value of EV charging station installations in low to middle income (LMI) communities to elected officials and decision makers. 
  4. Create a scalable, sustainable, replicable program delivery model for other communities of concern.
