EVs Are Environmentally Friendly.
EVs have no tailpipe emissions. Your Cooperative's generation portfolio continues to evolve into using more emission-free renewable energy to generate your electricity. However, a portion of our power must come from fossil fuels to remain reliable. So, your EV is not 100% fossil fuel-free but it does use more renewable energy than a gasoline car.
Never Go To The Gas Station Again.
Electric vehicles 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 faster, more efficient charging.
EV Performance Benefits.
Electric motors provide quiet, smooth operation, stronger acceleration and require less maintenance than gasoline-powered internal combustion engines.
EV Driving Range & Recharge Time.
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.*
