Quiet, clean, efficient and autonomous. Plug and Play. If you think it’s Popular Science Futurama, it’s not. We get to see some of the best in Green Tech before most and its getting better each day. It is an honor for the privilege yet not an overnight success. Anyway, we will bring you the stuff, you decide if it’s interesting and thanks to people like Charley Garlow and the many like-mind whose resources prove invaluable. And I may be dreaming when writing about transportation without a plug yet for now that remains Futurama. In the mean time, bring on the PEV’s!
Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) are powered by electricity produced primarily by domestic sources such as coal, natural gas, nuclear and renewable sources. Powering vehicles by using domestic energy sources helps states diversify the transportation fuel mix and increase the use of local energy resources.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, at least 25 plug-in electric vehicle models are currently available in the U.S. and more than 600,000 plug-in electric vehicles have been sold in the U.S. Consumers and fleets need access to affordable, convenient charging stations at home, at work, or in public areas. While access to charging stations has previously been an issue for consumers considering purchasing PEVs, manufacturers, automakers, utilities and state and federal agencies are rapidly expanding the network of stations. More than 16,000 charging stations now exist in the U.S., more than half of which have been built since 2015.
And hope to see you at Green Drinks Rehoboth this Tuesday evening at 6pm!
