Unsurprisingly, the outline recommends tax incentives for the purchase of electric vehicles by both individuals and businesses as well as a build-out of the infrastructure needed to support those vehicles. The council recommends installing electric charging stations at state-owned locations, places like office buildings, parks, museums and highway rest areas.
Even if all of these recommendations are implemented, the council projects that plug-in vehicles will only account for about five percent of the vehicles on on the road or 25,000 units in the state by 2020. At least it's a start.
