Electric Vehicles (EV)

The Village of Maywood is preparing for the expected increase in electric vehicles (EVs) and EV charging stations by participating in the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus’ EV Readiness Program. We are reducing barriers to EV infrastructure investment and making it easier for residents and businesses to install EV charging stations. 

The Village of Maywood has also pulled together information from many sources to help you learn about EVs and EV charging stations, decide if they are right for you, and move through the EV charger permitting and installation process. Join us on this journey to EV Readiness!

Village of Maywood designated as a Bronze Level Community for EV Readiness!

On December 7, 2023, the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus (Caucus) and ComEd celebrated the first class of communities to complete the EV Readiness Program, created to help local governments prepare for the growth of electric vehicles (EVs) and charging infrastructure across northern Illinois. In total, 12 diverse municipalities were recognized at an awards event for their work to achieve the designation of “EV Ready Community.” Through the program, communities have taken steps to develop permitting for EV charging infrastructure, conduct training for local staff, and implement plans that engage the community and ensure a safe integration of zero-emissions vehicles. We are well on our way to a more responsible and climate sustainable Maywood, said Mayor Nathaniel George Booker, Village President of Maywood.

Press Release excerpt from Mayor Nathaniel George Booker- Village of Maywood
Thank you ComEd and the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus for selecting the Village of Maywood in your Inaugural EV Readiness Initiative. ComEd’s $231 million investment in Beneficial Electrification plan programs that are designed to accelerate the adoption of electrified technologies, including electric vehicles (EVs).

Together, ComEd's investments and partnerships to enable the electrification of transportation, buildings and industry will play a key role in addressing the impacts of climate change and enhancing air quality for all communities and advancing the goals of the state's Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (CEJA), which sets a goal of putting 1 million EVs on Illinois roads by 2030. Maywood is working in partnership with National League of Cities as a selected city for the Good Jobs, Great Cities initiative with the U.S. Department of Labor. Only 33 cities across the nation were selected for this great opportunity and we could not be more honored for the partnership and collaboration. We are working on great things to come with EV Readiness, CEJA, and Good Jobs, Great Cities.
