Mobilizing Communities and Recognizing Leadership Action in Support of Electric Vehicles

Electric Vehicles Can Recharge America

Recharge America is a national nonprofit that recognizes leadership action and mobilizes communities in support of electric vehicles (EVs.) We envision a country that embraces clean transportation for all of us to help ignite community-based innovation and expand economic opportunity. Today, EVs on U.S. roads constitute less than one half of one percent of all cars. Boosting adoption totals can support efforts to revitalize economies everywhere.

About Recharge America

Spotlighting the strategies, stories, and initiatives leading the charge with electric vehicles.

Recharge America is a national nonprofit that works across the nation to unlock the economic development potential presented by EVs and ensure that they are delivered to communities in every part of the country.

Our pathbreaking recognition program, administered in partnership with states and communities, spotlights leadership action by companies, community-based organizations, educational institutions and others in support of EVs.

We offer a range of tools and support for communities to help conduct local EV education campaigns, build charging stations, improve regulations, advance cost-effective policies, and sharpen messaging and communications.

Finally, we have created an investment vehicle through which individual, community, state and national philanthropy can be directed to support local initiatives aimed at sparking collaboration and job creation related to clean transportation.

Recharge America is governed by an independent board of directors. Organizational adminstration services are provided by REACH Strategies. Program partners across the country include state and local agencies, foundations, community-based organizations, higher education institutions, companies large and small, and a wide range of community participants.

On average, every EV in a community delivers over $1,000 per year in local economic development benefit.*

Recharge America mobilizes support for EV adoption at the community and state level to help keep energy dollars local, boost local economies, capture the benefits of clean transportation for local communities, and build a fresh narrative about renewing America rooted in shared community values.
