Many people are now turning their interest to electric cars and perhaps for all the right reasons. There are a number of reasons why these vehicles may be the ideal next purchase for most consumers. Gervais Electric, Inc. wants to take this opportunity to share some of the advantages with our valued clients, which include lower fuel costs, energy independence, and the power of contribution to a cleaner and safer environment. The cost to charge an electric vehicle ranges from $15 to $50 a month. How much money will you save if you were able to lower your fuel cost to $15-$50 for an entire month?
TOP BENEFITS OF ELECTRIC CARS
- Minimized and even the alleviation of fuel costs – We are all familiar with the many trips to the gas station and how expensive that cost can be. With the fluctuating prices in gasoline, the costs can become quite a burden, and a challenge to many. When you purchase an electric car, you can stop worrying about the necessary trips to the gas station and the ongoing price increases as well. As we all know, electricity is a great deal less expensive than gasoline and comes with a pretty stable price tag, which ensures that price increases and swings are no longer a concern.
In addition, to this obvious benefit, costs can be reduced even further when you choose to install rooftop solar panels to charge your new vehicle. When you choose to produce your own electricity by way of solar panels, monthly electric bills no longer present with high increases. This may be an added investment that many consumers may want to consider.
- Add to the safety and cleanliness of the environment – When you invest in electric cars you are reducing car emissions. When switching over to these innovative new cars, we help to reduce the amount of damage that is done to the environment and the earth. Carbon dioxide emissions that are emitted from traditional cars and trucks actually help to accelerate many of the climate changes we are witnessing today. Electric vehicles, on the other hand, do not release any carbon monoxide into the atmosphere when they are driven. In addition, hybrid electric cars use a vehicle battery to enhance the distance drivers are able to travel with an engine powered by gasoline.
Also, electric vehicles of all types can be fueled by electricity generated by a number of renewable sources such as hydropower, wind, and of course, solar. Gasoline, on the flip side, can only produce by way of extraction and transportation processes. Electric vehicles are built to be far more environmentally friendly and safer than typical vehicles with batteries that can be recycled. When you choose to invest in an electric vehicle you can easily reduce your carbon footprint and minimize the amount of pollution to help conserve our environment.
- Now you can be energy independent – When you own a conventional vehicle of any sort, you are technically a slave to the gas pump since it is the only way to fuel your car or truck. However, with electric cars you simply connect to an electric grid. And the electricity generated provides the fuel needed. Electric vehicles also allow owners to become much more energy independent through the use of renewable electricity for fueling. When you match a solar PV system with your very own electric vehicle, you are able to produce electricity that is free from the sun. This makes your vehicle energy independent. Why go out and purchase gasoline week after week, day after day when you can enjoy the convenience and benefits of renewable electricity as your fuel source?
