Correction: Electric Vehicles-Urban Living story

Electric Vehicles Urban Living Stephanie Terrell, a Portland, Ore., renter who owns a used electric car, charges it at a public charging station in a grocery store parking lot on Sept. 30, 2022. Terrell bought an EV this fall, but charging it up has been a constant challenge because as a renter she does not have access to a private garage where she can plug in overnight and public options are often limited.

Electric Vehicles Urban Living Rebecca DeWhitt charges her electric vehicle in the driveway of the Portland, Ore., home she rents on Sept. 30, 2022. DeWhitt and her partner aren't allowed to use the rental home's garage and so they charge their EV using an extension cord that plugs into a standard electrical outlet outside their front door. The great transition to electric vehicles is underway for homeowners who can charge their cars in a private garage, but for millions of renters like DeWhitt, access to charging remains a significant barrier.

Los Angeles is a leader among U.S. cities in installing publicly accessible chargers, including 450 on city street light poles and 50 on power poles.
