Californians are changing how they do things to lessen their carbon footprint. Doing so puts electric cars at the forefront as EVs serve the people their transportation needs while helping our environment to breathe. However, there was a decline in the sales of electric vehicles (EV) from 2018 to 2019, based on the data gathered by EV Volumes. People know the benefits of using EVs but what hinders the majority of the people to make the change.
DRYCO has had the opportunity to help numerous property managers throughout Northern California make their parking lots EV friendly by installing Electric Vehicle charging stations. It is estimated that in California there are going to be more EV charging stations than gas stations by 2030.
EV owners face a couple of challenges in maintaining their units. In an article published by Auto Beat Online, they discussed that it isn’t the technology that prevents people from buying EVs but it’s more of an infrastructure problem. They write: Since September 2014, Ford has calculated—using data from its MyFord Mobile smartphone app, charging network and employee surveys—that there have been more than 165,000 charges, which translates to some 2-million EV miles, and a reduction of carbon emissions on the order of 600,000 kg. What’s more, the results show that even though gas prices are low, the availability of workplace charging is positively influencing the adoption of EVs by its employees.
