This study identifies the challenges faced by Seattle residents without off-street access to PEV charging. It identifies the barriers faced nationally, regionally, and within Seattle. The study identifies the current business models for charging that support or hinder owners of “garage orphan” PEVs who do not fit the typical profile of early adopters (access to a garage or other dedicated off-street parking with access to electricity). The study provides an overview of PEV development and adoption in the United States and considers the existing conditions and barriers to PEV adoption in three Seattle neighborhoods.
