Chicago Joins Electric Vehicle Revolution – Charges Up DriveElectricChicago Website
The city of Chicago is now putting forth a strong effort to promote the uptake of electric vehicles.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced a website (www.DriveElectricChicago.org) that he says is a “one-stop-shop” for all information on electric vehicles.
The site include info on rebates, how electric vehicles save the environment, how EVs save money and it discusses how to get charging stations in multi-unit dwellings. Of course, the website covers much more than just this. Check it out here.
In a statement, Emanuel remarked that driving an electric vehicle is a “smart choice,” adding:
“The City of Chicago is committed to an environment in which energy efficient vehicles are the norm, not the exception.”
Chicago is actively working with various organizations in an effort to get more public charging stations installed to further promote the uptake of electric vehicles.
