We all do small things for the environment. And, every so often we have the opportunity to take an action that has a big impact. Now is the time! When we replace our gas-powered cars with clean electric vehicles, we reduce 40% of our carbon footprint and never need to use gasoline again!

Benefits of Driving Electric

Driving electric means no more trips to the gas station. You’ll save about 75% on your gasoline bill and appreciate virtually no car maintenance. You’ll zip through traffic with a carpool sticker and enjoy a superior driving experience. Clean. Quiet. Fast. The feeling of joining the clean revolution? Priceless.

EVs: Power Up During Power Shutdowns

We know, it’s counterintuitive to say an EV is preferable for emergencies and power shutdowns. But they are, and here’s why: Emergency experts recommend keeping your gas or electric car at least half full at all times. With an EV, there are no repeated trips to the gas station. Instead, you can simply plug in at home each night during fire season and sustain a full battery. Easy! During power shutdowns, you can connect an inexpensive and easy-to-use device, an inverter, to your EV to power small electronics and you’ll only use a fraction of your car battery. Just one more reason drive electric. Before using an inverter with your EV, please check local fire codes and vehicle warranty.
