NYT Article Highlights Benefits of Electric Vehicle Ownership
The New York Times had an interesting article today about how the first customers that have committed to buying Nissan Leafs are being showered with federal/state/local financial benefits and personal attention from Nissan execs. Sounds like quite the deal and really illustrates the future we are working towards! Several communities (including King County, Washington) are using their EECBG funding to participate in “The EV Project” mentioned in the article. Nothing’s going to accelerate EV adoption like investing in local communities!
“The federal energy efficiency block grant program is helping thousands of communities leverage funding for projects that are saving energy, saving money, putting people back to work and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels that pollute the environment and contribute”
