Rockville is answering the call of the city’s Climate Action Plan to reduce transportation emissions by electrifying its fleet.
The city recently expanded its number of electric fleet vehicles from one to 14 and is expecting an additional four vehicles, with each replacing a similar-sized light-duty gasoline vehicle.
In going electric, Rockville is protecting the air and saving taxpayer dollars. Electric vehicles produce 80% lower emissions (in direct and indirect emissions) and cost half as much to maintain as conventional gasoline vehicles.
You, too, can consider going electric. Visit marylandev.org for information about vehicle models and incentives available for purchasing electric vehicles and chargers.
