Sonoma County was honored by the Bay Area Climate Collaborative as the “Most Electric Vehicle Ready Community for 2011” for its wide-ranging policies to accelerate widespread electric vehicle (EV) adoption and municipal usage of EVs.

Bay Area Climate Collaborative's award, given late last week, was announced Tuesday in a news release by Jim Leddy, spokesman for Sonoma County Board of Supervisors.

Leddy said 11 agencies were nominated for the award and their submittals were judged based upon number of installed and proposed charging stations, adopted policies and ordinances in support of charging stations, ease of permitting for EV charging stations, outreach and education to catalyze the EV market, and a number of other criteria.
