Connections: The state of electric vehicle usage

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

One of the barriers for drivers who are considering electric vehicles is that they don't find many places to plug in and charge up. What if that changed in a big way?

That's the theme for the upcoming Passport to Workplace Charging and Electric Vehicle Showcase. We discuss the state of electric vehicle usage; the increasing adoption of plug-in capacity; environmental impact; and more. Our guests:

  • Carolyn Levine, program lead for Rochester EV Accelerator
  • Shannon Ealy, manager of the Office of Future Leadership for the Rochester Chamber of Commerce
  • Sue Hopkins, EV driver
  • Ben Prochazka, vice president of the Electrification Coalition
