Charge It!: Preparing Your Hometown for Electric Transit
July 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Rural towns and smaller municipalities have specific challenges when it comes to using electric vehicles in their transit systems and installing electric vehicle charging infrastructure. From power delivery and lack of community support to local availability of electric vehicles and overall lack of awareness, rural townships may face multiple roadblocks. In this webinar, Clean Cities coordinators from Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas, and Kansas will share case studies and best practices to help avoid the pitfalls that can impede plans to deploy EVs and develop an equitable charging infrastructure that fits the needs of a smaller transit system. Guest speaker Chris Nielsen of eCab North America uses Low Speed Electric Vehicles for his fleet of eCabs. He is part of a grant providing eCabs and drivers to rural transit systems for first / last mile trips, a cost-effective way to extend the reach of the transit. As part of the Q&A section, Chris will discuss his experiences with LSEVs and F/L mile applications and provide tips to enhance your LSEV experience.
