ASHLAND, Ore. – The City of Ashland is working to help accelerate electric vehicle adoption.

Their climate and energy action plan in addition to the state’s climate plan are working together to increase the number of electric vehicles on the roads.

“Electrification programs have been talked about for years now,” said Stu Green, the Climate and Energy Analyst for the City of Ashland, “We are making some progress at this point, especially because we have the climate plan behind us and electric vehicle adoption is really on the upswing here. Interestingly enough Ashland has some of the highest electric vehicle adoption in the state, from what I understand.”

To continue the conversation, Ashland has created a webpage that helps people evaluate whether electric vehicles are a good match for them.

“You can get on there and put in the type of car that you drive, how many miles you typically go and you can select against different electric vehicles that are on the market to see what the financial differences would be for you if you exchanged your current car for an electric car,” said Green, “When you look at buying an electric vehicle you definitely want to have a sense of what your normal driving habits are. For most people, around 95% of our daily driving habits would be easily covered by today’s electric vehicles. For those times that you need to get a little more range is easy enough to either have a second vehicle or to rent a vehicle for that short amount of time.”
