Businesses Raise EV Charging Stations Awareness
May 15, 2019—Communities within seven Northeastern states (New York, Connecticut, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and New Jersey) are partnering with more than 100 local businesses to demonstrate their support for electric vehicles and let customers know they could be charging their cars while they visit.
To highlight the availability of thousands of charging stations in the Northeast and to celebrate small business owners who believe in supporting an electric vehicle lifestyle, “Drive Change. Drive Electric.” launched Destination Electric Tuesday.
Consumers will be able to identify a Destination Electric local business through a recognizable storefront decal, much like the visible rating guides found at many retailers.
There are more than 40 models of electric cars available today to meet every driver’s needs, with more coming in the next year. Destination Electric’s 14 pilot communities will demonstrate that people can find charging stations at places they want to go, both locally and outside their community.
