EVs bring new business
Electric vehicle (EV) adoption in your community can help achieve cost saving, environmental and economic development goals.
Next time you’re out for a drive, look around to see if you can spot an EV. There are more than 1 million EVs on U.S. roads today, and that number is estimated to grow to more than 26 million by 2030.
EVs can help stimulate the economy and move your community to the next level.
- Bring in new business. Install EV charging stations in your community to attract and retain innovative businesses looking to locate somewhere forward thinking and smart.
- Save money with an electric fleet. Adopt EVs for your community fleet needs to help your bottom line. It can cost less than half to charge EVs than to fuel traditional gas- or diesel-powered vehicles. And, with fewer moving parts under the hood, maintenance typically costs significantly less.
- Meet sustainability goals. Plug-in EVs produce fewer emissions than conventional gas- or diesel-powered vehicles. An increase in EV adoption and the installation of EV charging stations can help your community create a cleaner environment and meet sustainability goals. This will help keep businesses in your community and attract new companies.
- Create jobs. Requests for cleaner, quieter vehicle options are growing. With high demand comes the need for supply. EV production requires additional jobs within the auto industry. And according to energyfuse.org, opportunities for workers of various backgrounds will grow as production continues to increase.
