North Carolina’s electric cooperatives are working to create a statewide network of EV charging stations, enabling more consumers in both rural and urban areas to adopt this technology.
As more electric vehicles hit the roads, electric cooperatives see increased access to charging stations as a way to open the door to more travelers, increase tourism and bring economic benefits to co-op communities. Electric vehicles are also a key part of how co-ops are bringing beneficial electrification to North Carolina, which will benefit the grid, the environment and co-op members and communities.
