Last month, we explored how Green is the the future of everything. This week we will dive in deeper and talk about some exciting green sciences that are revolutionizing our world. We will explore how driving an electric car can help save our environment, explain just what EV Charging is, and elucidate why is it crucial for businesses to accommodate these technologies. Let’s Jump In!
How does driving an electric car help save our environment? While scientists warn that global warming is a real threat to our way of life, there are concrete steps individuals can take to reduce their carbon footprints. Emissions from cars and trucks are contributing largely to the impending crisis, responsible for almost a fifth of total US emissions.
Although we know that driving any vehicle is taxing on our environment, science is creating alternative means of transportation that don’t force consumers to choose between the health of the planet and convenience. One such example are electric cars. Making the switch from a traditional car to an electric car can reduce your toll on the environment by more than half.
A traditional car produces harmful emissions like, Carbon Monoxide, Sulfate Dioxide, Hydrocarbons, Hazardous air pollutants, and other Greenhouse Gases that are damaging to our health and the health of our Earth. With an electric car you can avoid many of these harmful pollutants. Simply charging your car instead of relying on fossil fuels is step in the right direction. But how can we help support this transition and make electric cars a practical alternative on a large scale?
This leads us to EV Charging. EV Charging or Electric Vehicle Charging is for battery powered electric cars. These devoted power stations are popping up nationwide and Colorado is no exception. There is some variance in their efficiency, most requiring a few hours to achieve a full charge, but the newer advance models can take as little as 20-30 minutes!
Why is it important to have accessible EV Charging?
As we begin to realize the profound affect our lifestyles are having on our environment, we also are discovering changes we can make to protect ourselves, our communities, and our planet. We have realized the status quo is no longer sustainable. Easily accessible EV charging is a crucial step in ensuring we can adopt these important changes. With the convenience of affordable, accessible charging, electric cars will begin to have the infrastructure necessary to claim their role as truly revolutionary technology. For environmental consciousness to move into focus and for society to begins its transition to sustainability, we all need to do our part.
