(KFOR NEWS September 29, 2020) Drive Electric Week, Sept. 26th – Oct. 4th, is an annual event to highlight the climate, clean air and cost savings benefits provided by electric vehicles. Beginning in 2011, this year marks the national event’s 10th Anniversary. It has grown from celebrations in 29 cities across the country in 2011 to over 300 individual events in 2019.
In recognition of Drive Electric Week, Lincoln Electric System is offering customers an update on the current state of EVs in the community along with what the utility has been doing to help prepare the Lincoln area for a plug-in future:
“Like many industries, electric transportation purchases have slowed in 2020,” said Marc Shkolnick, manager of Energy Services at LES. “However, infrastructure is still being installed and movement in the markets remains. We continue to monitor trends and prepare our community for increasing adoption of electric vehicles.”
