We release millions of tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere in the US just from transportation alone. You can make a significant positive difference by using electric cars instead of gasoline-powered vehicles. We are passionate about bringing electric vehicles into the mainstream, and we provide the best electric car plug in stations Washington offers.
There is no doubt that electric vehicles trump combustion engines when it comes to a variety of factors. First, they don’t produce any emissions, so they are safe for the environment. They are also many times three times as efficient at utilizing energy as gas engines. Electric vehicles convert between 59 to 62 percent of electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels, while gasoline vehicles only convert between 17 and 21 percent of the energy in gasoline to power at the wheels.
Additionally, they are very safe, compact, quiet, and convenient. Furthermore, electric cars are durable and will last you for years to come. Electric vehicle batteries can last between 12 to 15 years in moderate climates and 8-12 in severe climates. Finally, while electric vehicles cost more than gas vehicles, you can receive an income tax credit of up to $7,500 when you buy an electric vehicle.
Battery technology has come a long way since the first electric cars were produced. The range of an electrical vehicle definitely is shorter than a conventional gas-powered vehicle. They typically can go more than 100 miles on a charge, and some of them can go around 200 to 300 miles.
A downside of electric vehicles is the recharging time. They can take between 3 and 12 hours to fully charge, and a fast charge to 80 percent capacity can still take 30 minutes. Still, the wait is definitely worth the benefits.
There are also not nearly as many charging stations as there are gas stations, but we are seeking to improve that by adding as many charging stations to the community as we can. In the Greater Seattle area, there are about 400 charging stations, and we are adding more every day. More and more communities across the country are adding charging stations to make it easier to travel longer distances with electric vehicles.
Electric car plugin stations are our passion. What’s amazing is that we use the power of the sun to power the charging stations so that even the charging of the vehicle doesn’t require fossil fuel use. Contact us to learn more about electric vehicles today.
