Yeah, I'll bet that's the case! I can tell you that, whenever we stop for gas along an interstate, my wife inevitably takes at least a half-hour to visit the restroom, dump our garbage, take our pooch for a walk, buy a drink or snack, etc., etc. So for us a QuickCharge station would be just as fast.garygid wrote:Nothing makes you a QC convert quicker than actually using one.
Having several reliable, well-placed QCs to use is a SIGNIFICANT game changer!
I just talked to Josh at Tim Dahle and that was his red Leaf in the picture with the Guv. I asked him about the state of Utah doing something to promote EV's and he said all they wanted to talk about was CNG.Darren wrote:I think that is the LEAF from the dealer that they bought out of CA. I want to say it is Tim Dahle.
If the governor is pushing clean air maybe that will change incentives for electric cars.
To my legislators I wrote: [Senator/Representative XXX]:
I see that Utah has now updated its list of "clean fuel" vehicles to include both the Nissan Leaf and the Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric cars:
It is about time! After all, these are the most efficient vehicles identified by the EPA:
In fact, the i-MiEV is now the greenest car on the ACEEE's top ten list, and the Nissan Leaf's score again ties with that of Honda's CNG vehicle in second place:
Isn't it also time, therefore, for Utah to award the same $2,500 tax credit to electric vehicles that it does to CNG cars? After all, is the incentive to help clean our air? Or to subsidize Questar Gas? How and why should CNG vehicles be given a credit four times larger than that for cars that are even cleaner and more efficient?
We depend upon our elected representatives to enact regulations that are in the best interest of all Utah's citizens, and not just one corporation. Please do the right thing and bring to the floor a bill to raise the tax credit for EVs to the same level as for CNG vehicles.
I hope to receive a response from you soon.
