Pennsylvania EV Policy

The Electrification Coalition conducts policy work in Pennsylvania to advance the deployment and adoption of electric vehicles and the development of charging infrastructure. 

Pennsylvania Policy Landscape

Pennsylvania has taken important steps toward an electrified transportation future. This includes actions by the state government, local governments, and private sector, including utilities and EV-related companies, in partnership with non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders.

Freedom to Buy Vehicles in Pennsylvania

Outdated laws in Pennsylvania are standing in the way of consumers and businesses’ freedom to buy the vehicles of their choice. These restrictions on car and truck buyers are obstructing economic growth and blocking Pennsylvanians’ access to the latest automotive technologies. Pennsylvania’s leaders need to update these laws so that consumers don’t face unnecessary obstacles when purchasing a vehicle. 

Check out our Freedom to Buy Vehicles in Pennsylvania page for more information on the subject.

In August 2020, the EC brought together 120 electric vehicle policymakers, industry experts, and advocates for a day-long discussion about how to accelerate EV policy in Pennsylvania. See a full list of speakers, slides, and a recording of the event.
