In December 2022, The Metropolitan Mayors Caucus and ComEd announced 16 Illinois communities, including Kane County, will receive training and assistance in a new Electric Vehicle (EV) Readiness program. Funded in part with a $225,000 commitment from ComEd, the EV Readiness program will help municipalities streamline policies, meet the growing demand for EVs and charging infrastructure, and implement best practices for safe and effective regional transportation electrification. A second cohort was announced in August of 2023 comprising an additional 15 communities. Our aim is to advance transportation electrification in the region and make it faster, easier, and more affordable for our residents and businesses to install EV charging stations in our community. In Kane County alone the number of EV cars has nearly quadrupled from an estimated 739 in 2019 to 3727 in December 2023.

Joining the cohort will allow us to address these high-level Greenest Region Compact (GRC) goals:

  • Support efficient transportation that uses resources wisely.
  • Integrate sustainability into transportation policies, programs, and regulations.
  • Promote sustainable transportation choices.​
  • Maintain a diverse, safe and efficient transportation network.
  • Operate a safe, clean, and efficient fleet.
