Electricity can be used to power all-electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV’s) directly from the power grid using battery storage, or from electricity generated on-board through fuel cells (see hydrogen fuel cells).

Electric vehicles were developed in Europe over a century ago, and in 1899 were the most popular vehicle type sold in the United States before being overtaken by petroleum-based engines. However, when air quality and energy independence emerged as top priorities at the turn of the 21st century, electric vehicle propulsion has been gaining popularity yet again.

Electricity Basics

Electric vehicles can help increase energy security, improve fuel economy, lower fuel costs, and reduce emissions.

How will it benefit my business?

First and foremost, electric cars have much lower fuel costs compared to conventional vehicles. While still not as ubiquitous as gas stations, public charging stations are becoming more popular all the time. In fact, charging stations surpassed 15,000 in 2017, and are expected to keep growing as the demand for fuel efficient vehicles continues to rise.

Outside of fuel savings, you can also quality for federal tax credit and state incentives when you buy electric or hybrid vehicles. Not a bad deal, considering electric cars produce literally zero tailpipe emissions.
