Pioneering Utah employers are accepting the LIVE Electric Workplace Charging Challenge, installing chargers for plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) at their worksites. By taking on this challenge, you show employees, customers, and the community you are committed to innovation and making positive changes. The WestSmart EV partnership invites you to
- Assess charging demand to recognize and meet your team’s needs.
- Commit to a reasonable minimum goal of charging provision for EV driving employees.
- Plan how you will deploy charging at one or more worksites.
- Communicate the plan with your employees and the community.
- Share your progress over time and exchange best practices and lessons learned with other forward-thinking challenge partners.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Work Electric, managed by Utah Clean Cities, can help stakeholders in a variety of ways and will provide appropriate recognition through our website.
» Buying a Car (Level 1/Silver): To simply buy an electric car for a fleet, the Work Electric Program will help complete the Live Electric incentive application.
» Fleet Conversion (Level 2/Gold): To help fleet managers and their teams convert to electric vehicles, Work Electric will collect data to demonstrate the overall benefits for each vehicle that is switched to a hybrid or an electric vehicle (EV). Work Electric will offer EV fleet conversion workshops across the state.
» Sustainability Programs (Level 3/Platinum): Work Electric will help stakeholders with an in-depth analysis of their fleets (AFLEET analysis + sustainability overview) to develop or enhance their sustainability programs through goal setting and strategies to meet company goals and employee expectations
