Electric Vehicles & Charging Stations

Durham City and County encourage the use of electric vehicles to reduce local air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. When charged in off-peak hours, electric vehicles result in fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline-powered vehicles.

The City has 4 all-electric fleet vehicles, which are used by Community Development, Neighborhood Improvement Services, and General Services. The County has 2 all-electric vehicles, which are used by Public Health and the Engineering and Environmental Services Department.

The City and County make it easier for residents and visitors to use electric vehicles by installing publicly accessible charging stations throughout the community.  We encourage operators of electric vehicles to only charge vehicles in off-peak hours (usually overnight) to reduce the greenhouse gases produced from electricity generation.
