Understanding Your Electric Vehicle

Why should you drive electric?

There are so many reasons drivers make the switch to electric vehicles. Here are some reasons why you should consider going electric:

  • Public charging options are more readily available and growing
  • They're less expensive to fuel because electricity prices are cheaper than gas
  • Fueling your car with electricity can reduce emissions to about 1/3 of conventional vehicles*
  • Reduced maintenance costs saves money on oil changes, tune-ups, and parts
  • Federal tax credits, local vehicle incentives, and a growing inventory of used vehicles help make EVs more affordable
  • They're smooth-shifting with powerful acceleration and a quiet motor

Energy Saving Tip

What's the point in filling your home with cool or warm air, only to have it disappear? Invest in high quality insulation to help keep temperature-controlled air where it belongs.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
