EV Make-Ready programs vary from utility to utility. That’s why the Electric School Bus Initiative has developed our Electric Vehicle (EV) Make-Ready Programs guide, which contains information on core program components and how Make-Ready programs can support the build-out of essential EV charging infrastructure. 

Looking for information on existing Make-Ready programs? Download our table of investor-owned utilities’ (IOU), municipal utilities’ (Munis) and cooperative utilities’ (Co-op) Make-Ready programs for real-world examples. Developed in partnership with Clean Energy Works, this table offers detailed information on existing Make-Ready programs in use today.

Are there IOU, Munis or Co-op commercial Make-Ready programs missing from our resource? Reach out to Gregg Kresge at! 

The purpose of the Electric Vehicle (EV) Make-Ready Programs guide is to inform utility regulators and other audiences of Make-Ready program design elements and various considerations to assist in reaching program goals and intentions. The related Make-Ready program data is not a comprehensive dataset, will be updated periodically and excludes residential and other program types. It should be noted that there may be additional programs not listed here, or some programs have closed and dispersed their funds.
