About Plug-in NC

Plug-in NC has been working since 2011 to establish North Carolina as a leader in electrified transportation. We are a state-wide program that promotes electric vehicles through education and outreach, consulting and resource development. We also strive to provide a collaborative opportunity for stakeholders to work together to ensure a seamless integration of plug-in electric vehicles into our local communities.


Our Mission

    We motivate

    Electric vehicles are a new technology and we believe that they can make a big impact. We encourage communities and organizations to support this technology by installing charging stations and purchasing electric fleet vehicles.

    We’re innovators and early-adopters. We see the opportunity that electric vehicles have and we seek to help build awareness. We recognize that charging stations help to boost the economy by attracting new visitors and serving as a progressive marketing tool.

    We Inspire

    We strive to be a positive influence. We inspire people to think larger and see how electric transportation plays a part in our communities. We support driving electric through our initiatives and actions.

  • ico-link
    We share

    We spread the word about driving electric and assist others in learning about electric vehicles and charging stations. We share experiences and seek to learn from others in order to gain best practices and increase electric vehicle adoption.

  • ico-leaves
    We breathe

    We care about the environment and want our communities to be healthy places to live, work and play. Electric vehicles lead to decreased local emissions so that the air we breathe is cleaner.

  • ico-car
    We drive

    We know electric vehicles are fun to drive. With instant torque and a smooth, quiet ride, electric vehicles’ driving performance is hard to beat. Because of all the benefits that come with electric vehicles we encourage drivers across North Carolina to drive electric.
