EV Benefits

Economic and environmental factors are the top reasons for considering electric-powered alternatives to vehicles that run on conventional fuels such as gasoline, propane and diesel.

Lower Cost

EVs generally cost less in total to own, operate and maintain than combustion-powered vehicles, even in cases where the initial purchase price is somewhat higher.

More Reliability

Electric motors have very few moving parts and don’t need fluids such as engine oil, anti-freeze or transmission fluid, so they require relatively little maintenance and are far less likely to leak. Excellent reliability means down time is less likely, too.

No pollutant Emissions

EVs emit no pollutant from the tailpipe, so they’re cleaner for the environment and better for everyone’s respiratory health.

Quieter

EVs also run far more quietly than their combustion-powered counterparts which enhances worker health and comfort – a smart move in an era of rising medical costs.

Lower Overall Emissions

The overall emissions associated with using EVs are typically far less than the emissions from their combustion-powered counterparts.

Overnight Charging

Most EVs charge up at night when system wide demand for electricity is low. They tap existing generating capacity that is not fully used rather than increasing demand for new capacity.

Reduced Oil Consumption

Choosing EVs instead of combustion powered vehicles contributes to reduced dumping of engine oils into the environment.
