The electric vehicle (EV) revolution is underway, but rural areas are at risk of being left behind. This is due to a number of factors, including a lack of EV charging stations, lower incomes, and longer travel distances. However, it is essential that rural areas have access to EV charging infrastructure, as this would have a number of benefits for both rural residents and the environment.
Making EV charging accessible to rural residents would help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, save rural residents money on fuel costs, and boost the local economy. It is therefore important that policymakers and businesses take steps to ensure that rural areas are not left behind in the EV revolution.
