From transporting building inspectors to worksites, to cleaning up parks and carrying materials from one location to another, fleets of gas- and diesel-powered vehicles eat up a significant share of state and local government budgets each year — and even more when gas prices are high. But a confluence of factors means that now is the perfect time to transition to electric vehicles and save taxpayers a truckload of cash.

Shifting to EVs doesn’t just provide financial benefits to our state and municipalities, it also improves — or limits the damage to — air quality, which in turn benefits public health, particularly for individuals who suffer from asthma or other respiratory illnesses.
