Electrifying transportation is crucial to limiting global warming to 1.5°C. Unfortunately, early EVs and their charging infrastructure have been concentrated in wealthy areas—and have therefore not been broadly accessible. To make the EV transition more inclusive we must bring EV chargers to low-income neighborhoods. One way to do that is…
