EVs now on the road in Sonoma County
Pace of EV ownership growth per year
Goal for number of EVs on the road by 2030
The Climate Center is working to accelerate the adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) here in Sonoma County and beyond. Thanks to the actions of our individual and business supporters, the number of EVs is growing fast.
EVs are the single biggest choice we can make to lower our climate impact. Plus, they are affordable and fun to drive. Many of our supporters, board members, staff, and volunteers have purchased or leased an electric car, joining thousands of other Sonoma County residents who have abandoned the gas pump for the plug. And more businesses and government facilities are installing charging stations to ensure that their employees and customers will always have the power they need, when they need it.
Our EV program focuses on achieving the following goals:
- Expanding the network of EV chargers
- Working in partnership with local stakeholders to ensure that Sonoma County moves from gasoline to electric cars as quickly as possible
- Educating drivers about the many advantages of going electric, including that it’s a really fun ride
- Linking our growing fleet of EVs to renewable sources of power, such as PVs (solar photovoltaics), which is the best way to quickly and permanently reduce our greenhouse gas emissions
Next time you are shopping for a car, whether it’s new or used, go electric. Give us a call at 707-280-1372 to learn your options.
