Go Electric and Save Money

It’s not easy to save money in this difficult economy, but driving an electric vehicle (EV) can help. The cost of the electricity necessary to charge an EV is about 40% less than fuel costs for a similarly sized vehicle going the same distance. That cost drops even more if you charge your EV from a solar PV system or a free charging station.

Maintenance costs are also lower driving an EV than driving their gas-powered counterparts. There are fewer moving parts that need to be serviced or replaced, and there are some services and parts you can do away with altogether, like oil changes, spark plugs, transmission fluid, engine air filters, and more.

Go Electric and Help Save the Environment

Electric driving is also easier on the environment than driving a vehicle powered by a combustion engine. Electric motors help reduce harmful air pollution from tailpipe emissions. If you’re driving a plug-in electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid, you still create some greenhouse gas emissions when charging from the electricity grid.

You can reduce these emissions however, if you charge your EV during the day with a solar PV system. You can also purchase GreenPower from your electricity provider, which means that even if you recharge from the electricity grid, the power is still coming from renewable energy sources.

Going Electric is Within Your Budget

With electric SUV and electric car driving ranges lengthier than ever, and public charging stations more prevalent than ever, driving an EV is no longer an inconvenience. Plus, the latest electric vehicles often offer better capability and newer technology than gas-powered vehicles.
