Connections: The state of electric vehicle usage

Feb 27, 2018

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
