As California surpasses all other states for the green initiatives, the city of Sacramento has received a whopping $1.8M grant to strengthen electronic vehicle (EV) use. There was a call for each city’s plan to zero out gas emission and Sacramento has been chosen with the best plan. For about 20 years, Sacramento has been at the forefront of EVs. They are looking to reach 75,000 EVs on the road by 2025. Incentives such as discounted parking in City-owned areas are being implemented to encourage more and more consumers to make the switch.
This grant is to be used to build accessible and better EV infrastructure to accommodate their growing EV consumers. DRYCO construction is the perfect partner for this. DRYCO is known for building EV charging stations of the highest standard. We are ADA compliant and know exactly the process especially in getting permits. The city will make sure that these charging stations are accessible to the rural areas as well. They advocate the use of EVs not only to help in the environment but more so to save money versus using regular gas cars. The long-term maintenance of EVs are much cheaper than gas cars as they only have few moving parts and don’t need oil changes. The Health benefits of reduced gas cars on the road is something that the next generation will be thankful for.
