If you’ve ever wondered where it’s easier to own an electric vehicle, a non-profit organization just published a chart that will give you the latest state rankings. The nonprofit and nonpartisan American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) this week released the State Transportation Electrification Scorecard that grades U.S. states on their progress in enabling residents and businesses to use and charge electric vehicles.

The Scorecard found California the clear leader among states, scoring 91 or 100 possible points. Rounding out the Top 10 were New York (63.5 points), Washington, D.C. (59), Maryland (56), Massachusetts (54.5), Washington (54), Vermont (54), Colorado (48), Oregon (47), and New Jersey (44). Several states (20) didn’t do as well, tallying 15 points or fewer.
