CBJ Electric Vehicle Charging Scenarios

The Juneau Commission on Sustainability (JCOS) has been asked to provide input on a proposed ordinance addressing Electric

Vehicle (EV) charging on CBJ property.  Currently there is no cost to the vehicle owner when charging at EV charging stations on

CBJ property (and at other publicly available charging location in borough).

 

JCOS is reviewing any proposed changes within the context of the 2018 Juneau Renewable Energy Strategy, 2011 Juneau

Climate Action and Implementation Plan, and a CBJ Assembly Resolution that is supportive of EV adoption in Juneau, all of which

are supportive of increased use of low emission or electric vehicles.  These documents can be found in the 'Relevant Background

Documents' below.

 

On Tuesday June 19, 2018 JCOS held a Sustainability Session to provide background information on the existing public charging

system in Juneau, an overview of the proposed ordinance, and some possible options the CBJ Assembly might consider instead.

The presentation and a background information sheet is provided below.

 

JCOS seeks input from the community on this topic.
