How many plug-in vehicles should there be in the smallest state in the U.S.? Project Get Ready Rhode Island thinks about 10,000. That's the group's stated goal for 2015, which would mean that two percent of the state's registered vehicles would have a plug in just five years. Project Get Ready Rhode Island announced the target during a press conference at the 2010 Northeast International Auto Show, but the Providence Journal wasn't able to get an answer about how, exactly, the 10,000 units would arrive in the state.

Project Get Ready Rhode Island is part of Project Get Ready, a non-profit initiative that came out of the Rocky Mountain Institute's (RMI) Smart Garage Summit. In Rhode Island, the initiative is supported by a lot of state politicians, and joins other Project Get Ready groups in places like Indianapolis, Houston, Denver and Tronoto.
