The novelty surrounding electric vehicles (EVs) is not wearing off. Last week, an op-ed in The San Francisco Chronicle reported that “the cost to charge an electric vehicle is comparable to 75 cents per gallon of gas,” which means that “owners can save upwards of $2,000 each year or more, especially since gas prices are likely to climb.”
Given this and other benefits that we’ve heard – from articles about how electric vehicles can help companies meet corporate sustainability objectives to the U.S. Department of Energy’s website (http://www.fueleconomy.gov) that states that EVs require less maintenance – investing in EVs might not be a bad idea. Especially given that there are income tax credits available for people who buy or lease them.
If you’re a current customer of ours and are contemplating purchasing EVs – off-highway passenger vehicles through heavy duty trucks – we can assist you in making informed decisions. We have extensive knowledge of the EV market, including familiarity with the manufacturers, infrastructure providers, state and federal regulatory policies, and financial incentive opportunities.
We can help you to determine load impacts associated with charging the type of EVs you are considering, including providing your company with information regarding how the change in load will affect your overall cost structure and budget and showing how purchasing EVs may align with your corporate sustainability plan.
