Utah Launches Drive Electric Website
Utah Electric Vehicles launched a website/tool for literally everything related to EVs & charging… The website is your “one stop shop“.
On this website you’ll find info for each EV, a charging station map with options to narrow down your search, a large list of benefits of going electric, a tool to see how much you can save and even customer testimonials.
The Sierra Club has created a tool that is similar to Utah’s. The reasons for the creation of sites such as this are obvious: It is a win-win to go electric, though some peopl can’t quite understand this win-win concept.
Executive Director of OED, Dr. Laura Nelson stated:
“Utah Drives Electric is focused on electric vehicles in particular because of the technology’s unique position at the nexus of the transportation and utility sectors, and because of its potential to positively impact air quality.”
“Our comprehensive goal is to promote the shift to a more diverse transportation system, one that includes electric vehicles, natural gas vehicles, alternative liquid fuels, and even public transit and pedestrian infrastructure.”
“OED has become a leader in advancing electric vehicle infrastructure deployment throughout the State of Utah.” OED already has partnered with Nissan, the Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR) and other stakeholders for Level III charging stations, and will continue partnerships next year to deploy more charging stations.”
“The Office will continue to partner to advance the deployment of these important technologies, and Utah Drives Electric is meant to facilitate the private investments that will be truly essential to the diversification of Utah’s transportation sector.“
