UTAH Rocky Mountain Power newsletter submission November 2016 – Honk if you love electric vehicles

utah-rockymountainpower-newsletter-nov2016-electricvehicle

More electric vehicles could be quietly whizzing down our roads because of efforts underway by Rocky Mountain Power.

With community partners, we’ve applied for a $4 million federal grant to place electric vehicle chargers along 1,500 miles of highway in our service area. The grant would also provide incentives to convert business cars to electric vehicles, and fund other electric transportation.

The U.S. Department of Energy is scheduled to announce grant recipients in January.

In addition, we recently submitted a plan to Utah regulators that will create incentives for EV charging infrastructure in the state.

“We’re committed to being part of the solution to improve air quality in the states we serve,” said Cindy Crane, Rocky Mountain Power president and CEO. “Right now motor vehicles are creating the most emissions in urban areas. Electric vehicles could help reduce vehicle pollution.”

If you are considering an electric vehicle, we have resources to help at rockymountainpower.net/ev.
