The first twelve EV Readiness Program cohort communities received their “EV Ready” Community awards on Thursday, Dec. 7, 2023.
The Village of Hanover Park is proud to support the delivery of cleaner, sustainable, and efficient energy in all forms. With the assistance of the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus, the Village became a member of the Greenest Region Compact (GRC) which strives to build vibrant, sustainable communities . Additionally, the Village holds a Gold Designation from the SolSmart program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy for its solar permitting initiatives and is a certified EV Ready Community- Bronze Designation. EV Ready Communities develop clear permitting for EV charging infrastructure, analyze zoning and parking codes to address barriers to EV infrastructure, engage the community, and participate in technical and safety training for staff. Municipalities may also tailor actions to suit the needs of their own community.
