How can electrification benefit rural communities?
Range anxiety, lack of charging infrastructure, affordability and variety are among the barriers to adoption for rural communities. Utilities have the opportunity to lead the way and drive the change to bridging the gap for access to clean vehicle technologies in these communities.
Utilities with rural customers can support the adoption of EVs, through projects and funding such as charging station grants, financial incentives, and by hosting ride and drive events for customers to test out the technology.
Our speakers will discuss past and current programs to electrify transportation in rural communities. Forth’s Program Manager, Kelly Yearick will be joined by Dick Wanderscheid, Director Renewable Energy Special Projects, Renewable Energy Group at Bonneville Environmental Foundation and Eva DeCesaro, Sr. Program Manager, Electric Transportation at Pacific Power.
