Transcript of Stakeholder Meeting Presentation

Electric Vehicle Charging Station Planning Rhode Island Top 50 Project Electricity can be generated from a wide range of energy sources:
Clean Energy
Renewable energy

Charging vehicles at night will help balance the demand on the electrical grid. Efficiency Why Electric Drive? Electric Vehicles use energy more efficiently than internal combustion engines (ICE) MPGe:
Miles per gallon equivalent Low Fuel Costs! A gallon of gasoline has the energy equivalent of 33.7 kilowatt-hours of electricity Roughly $0.04 per mile
Stable electricity pricing $ $ Energy Security Improved Air Quality Greenhouse gasses
Smog-forming emissions
Other pollutants Vehicles Convenient: home refueling

No transmission: smooth acceleration, quiet

Low maintenance: no oil changes, spark plugs, etc. Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles: PHEVs $7,500 Federal Tax Credit Chevy Volt
