BENEFITS OF SWITCHING TO ELECTRIC
Switching to electric trucks can offer a multitude of benefits for your business, your customers, and the planet. In a few short years, electric trucks will make up a much larger percentage of the vehicles on the road. And while the thought of making the transition to electric can be daunting, our eMobility solutions team is ready and waiting to help walk you through the entire process – from securing available government grants, to choosing and installing the appropriate charging equipment needed for your International® eMV™ Series. Let’s take a look at why switching to electric could be the right move for your business.
There is no question that electric vehicles are better for the planet. Electricity generation is rapidly moving away from coal-burning plants toward much-cleaner natural gas plants as well as renewable sources including solar, wind, geothermal and hydro. This switch in power generation will mean much less greenhouse emissions released into the atmosphere – not to mention particulate matter like soot. Another, less talked about benefit is the reduction of noise pollution. Cities and their citizens appreciate quiet neighborhoods – whether in a green suburb or concrete jungle. Electric motors offer a welcome reprieve from the noise of gas and diesel engines accelerating from a stop or powering up a hill. When all the benefits of electric-powered vehicles are considered for municipalities, city managers may be more likely to hire contractors that use electric vehicles to meet sustainability goals as well as reduce noise levels in neighborhoods.
