Sarasota County has a history of leadership on Electric Vehicles (EVs). Recognizing the myriad potential benefits of EVs, the county has expressed support through resolutions, installation of charging stations and education programs since 2005. Sarasota County was the first local government in Florida to add EVs to its fleet and now is second in the state for number of EVs per capita.
