Tucson’s proposed electric vehicle rules called too aggressive

By David Wichner | Arizona Daily Star

The city of Tucson is looking to make it easier for electric-vehicle drivers to charge up on the go in the future, with proposed new requirements for “EV readiness” for new apartments and commercial development.

Business and landlord groups say they support EVs, but the city may be moving too far, too fast with the rules, which include requirements that larger retail businesses devote 10% of their parking spaces to a combination of charging stations and EV-ready power outlets.

The proposed building-code amendments — recommended to the City Council in April and expected to come up for a possible vote in July — would require new commercial property developments to include minimum EV infrastructure ranging from EV-capable prewiring to EV charging stations, depending on each development’s intended land use.
