County Ready for Electric Vehicles

Kane County Electric Vehicle Ordinance
March 26, 2014

Electric Vehicle ChargingIt might be the first county in Illinois to take the initiative to pass an ordinance for Electric Vehicles.

The Northeastern Illinois Chapter was happy to volunteer to assist in the effort. With four Kane County Board members and a subcommittee of industry stakeholders, a subcommittee of the Transportation Committee has drafted an ordinance that it hopes will facilitate the adoption of Electric Vehicle usage throughout the County and perhaps serve as a template for other counties to use. In April, Kane County announced the installation of the first EV Charging station for the County itself at the Courthouse in Geneva.

The Ordinance was passed by the Kane County Board in February 2012. Click Here
