Opportunities for Adopting Electric Vehicles (EVs) in Municipal Fleets: A Primer Webinar

November 29, 2017 - 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Online

REGISTER

Public sector fleets are seeing significant benefits from the deployment of electric vehicles (EVs). By eliminating gas consumption, EVs reduce costs to fleets, promote energy independence and help protect the environment. This webinar will provide information for decision-makers to consider in determining how and when to add EVs to municipal fleets. We will discuss procurement options as well as provide an overview of both the benefits and challenges of fleet electrification. The webinar will introduce a new fleet analysis tool developed to assist municipalities in comparing the total cost of ownership for light duty vehicles and share information about EV Smart Fleets - an upcoming multi-state public sector fleet EV procurement opportunity for state and local governments. Information about New Jersey’s Board of Public Utilities EV Stakeholder process will be included in the webinar.  

The webinar is a collaboration between Sustainable Jersey, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, and EV Smart Fleets.
