Update from NC: Nascar and Sprint Join Workplace Charging Challenge

    The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Workplace Charging Challenge is a collaborative effort with the workplace to increase the prevalence of employers that offer workplace charging for electric vehicles. 

    “As the market for electric vehicles continues to grow, partners in the Workplace Charging Challenge are giving drivers more transportation options that save money and benefit the environment,” said Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Dr. David Danielson.

    Weeks ago, major corporations in North Carolina, Sprint and NASCAR, announced their participation in DOE’s Workplace Charging Challenge.  

    According to members of the Land of Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition, Triangle Clean Cities Coalition, and Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition in North Carolina, the electric vehicle infrastructure in the state has seen immense improvements to support the growth of the electric vehicle market. 

    Hopefully, North Carolina can provide an example for other states and employers to jump on the electric vehicle bandwagon. Improvements in infrastructure are needed to support the electric vehicle market, and the workplace is a good place to start.
