About Plug-in NC

Plug-in NC has been working since 2011 to establish North Carolina as a leader in electric transportation. We are a statewide program that promotes electric driving 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 electric vehicles into our local communities.


Our Mission

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

    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 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 decrease local emissions so that the air we breathe is cleaner.

    We drive

    We know electric vehicles are fun to drive. With instant torque and a smooth, quiet ride, the driving performance is hard to beat. We encourage drivers across North Carolina to drive electric and take advantage of all of the benefits it offers.
