Community Electric Vehicle Accelerators Survey

NYSERDA is considering launching a new program that would support community-driven awareness and marketing campaigns focused on accelerating electric vehicle (EV) adoption. The program would support grassroot campaigns, including activities like ride and drives, education partnerships, workplace charging and fleet electrification outreach, among others. Through them, businesses, governments and community-based organizations can bring EVs closer to people and help them access the financial incentives offered by NYSERDA and other government organizations. Outreach also offers an opportunity to support electrification for low- and moderate-income communities and people living in environmental justice areas, who are affected the most by tailpipe emissions from fossil-fuel powered vehicles.

To support this effort, we are requesting community-based organizations to fill out this 5-minute surveyLink opens in new window - close new window to return to this page.. The survey will allow NYSERDA to:

  1. Understand local organizations’ current capacity and interest to participate in a community-based EV outreach program.
  2. Identify effective outreach activities that could be appropriate to conduct as New York State recovers from the public health crisis related to COVID-19.

The survey will allow NYSERDA to further define the activity scope, timing and technical resources necessary to launch a successful program, in a way that is conscious of public health concerns and the challenges faced by local organizations.
