Most of these emissions continue to come from passenger vehicles, particularly SUVs and trucks.
To make the biggest impact, efforts to reduce transportation emissions should focus on:
  • Increasing electric vehicle adoption
  • EV charging infrastructure
  • Public transit ridership
  • Alternative modes of transportation

Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan for Eagle County
According to the 2021 inventory of Eagle County’s greenhouse gas emissions, transportation accounts for 42% of total emissions. To reduce these emissions, the 2020 Climate Action Plan Update set a priority action to increase the number of electric vehicles (EVs) registered in Eagle County by 2% each year. To meet this goal, Eagle County will need 13,542 registered EVs on the road by 2030.
Adding thousands of EVs will require significant investment in electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), commonly known as EV chargers. A lack of public EVSE is a barrier that many drivers cite as a reason for not purchasing an EV. As of December 2022, there were 106 public EV charging plugs in Eagle County. To support the goal of 13,542 EVs by 2030, Eagle County will need to add at least 1,129 public plugs (using a 12:1 EV-to-plug ratio).
The Eagle County Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan serves as an extension of the CAP 2020 Update, laying out resources and strategies for equitably-placed EVSE that will allow Eagle County to meet its EV adoption goal.
