Electric vehicles, a smart transportation choice.

Electric Vehicles (EV) Cost Less to Operate Than Gas Powered Cars.
EV operation can be three to five times cheaper than gasoline and diesel powered cars, depending on your local gasoline and electric rates.

EVs Are Environmentally Friendly.
EVs have no tailpipe emissions that contribute to climate change and smog, improving public health and reducing ecological damage.

Never Go to The Gas Station Again.
EVs do not require gasoline and can be charged at home with a standard 120V outlet, or a 240V level 2 charger can be installed for even faster and, more efficient charging.

EVs are Top Performers.
Electric motors provide quiet, and smooth operation, stronger acceleration, and require less maintenance than gasoline-powered internal combustion engines.

EVs Can Go the Distance.
EV range is typically around 80 to over 330 miles on a full charge. The average American’s daily round-trip commute is less than 30 miles. Fully recharging the battery pack can take four to eight hours. A "fast charge" to 80% capacity can take 30 min.*

This website is designed to provide you with information about electric vehicles (EVs) and to help shape a healthy EV marketplace. Our region is an ideal place to own an EV as much of our power is generated from nuclear and natural gas. That means that when you drive an EV you are trading your fossil fuels (gasoline and diesel) for energy coming from lower carbon sources. When you choose EV, you're likely using less fossil fuel than a traditional gas-powered car.
