Electric vehicles are affordable in Colorado!

About a third of our country’s emissions come from transportation, so whether you are carpooling or taking public transit, walking or biking more often, limiting the number of flights you take a year or considering purchase of an electric car, our collective decisions make a difference. Colorado is expanding support for zero-emission vehicles and congregations can help by making driving electric easier for your members, neighbors and wider community.

Electric Vehicles are cheaper to operate than gas burning cars, cost less to maintain  and if run on renewable electricity sources, are carbon neutral. To help congregations in Colorado cut pollution from transportation we are happy to share the below resources. If you have any stories of driving an EV and/or installing EV Charging Stations at your congregation, please contact marie@rapidshift.net.

There was great attendance and lively discussion in the January 23 EV Webinar hosted by CIPL. Topics covered included: the religious and social reasons for driving an EV, affordability, rebates, and California’s leadership in EV growth.

Below are helpful resources that came out of the webinar and that will help you on your journey to pollution-free driving:
