Some cities in America have prepared for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) for years, but the PEV transition will affect much of the U.S. relatively quickly, bringing a dose of opportunity for electrical contractors and distributors. A report released today by Roland Berger Strategy Consultants and the Rocky Mountain Institute's Project Get Ready maps out where the 50 largest cities in the U.S. are in the process of preparing the infrastructure needed to juice up all those batteries.
The leaders include Austin, Texas; Denver; Los Angeles; New York; Orlando, Fla.; Phoenix; Portland, Ore.; Raleigh, N.C.; Seattle; and Riverside, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco and San Jose, Calif.
