Ventnor to Consider Building Code Changes to Prepare for EVs

Did you know that the transportation sector in New Jersey is responsible for more than 43 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions? Because of this, the State of New Jersey is offering incentives to communities and businesses to install charging stations. Sales of electric vehicles continue to climb steadily throughout the country and the need for charging infrastructure is growing quickly. In order to be ahead of the curve, Ventnor City Commissioners are considering a recommendation from the green team to update zoning ordinances to include Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment as a permitted accessory use in select or all areas of the city. The city will also consider a plug-in electric vehicle ordinance which includes regulations and design standards for electric vehicle parking spaces and design standards for installation of charging stations.
