As drilling and process oil gets dirtier and dirtier, our electric grid only continues to get cleaner. That, combined with much lower fuel and maintenance costs compared to gas vehicles, make electric cars and buses a tremendous opportunity for clean energy progress.
Electric vehicles and renewable energy are like peanut butter and jelly: They’re great on their own, but they’re so much better together. Electric vehicles save money and are better for the environment, and wind energy is the lowest-cost way to make electricity in Minnesota.
While the first electric cars came at a premium price, new models are much more affordable. Many high quality electric cars were built three or more years ago, and as owners wrap up their leases and buy new models, it creates an influx of used electric cars for people looking at low-cost options.
Everyone deserves clean air to breathe. Fresh Energy is committed to powering more of our vehicles with clean electricity to cut carbon and reduce health-threatening air pollution.
