National Drive Electric Week kicks off Sept. 22, and Haywood EMC is joining this nationwide celebration to highlight the many benefits of driving electric.
Electric vehicles (EVs) have a lot to offer our member-owners, including increased convenience and cost savings! Today’s EVs offer near-instant torque, meaning fast acceleration and more response behind the wheel. There are sleek options to fit any driver, from sedans and trucks to SUVs and minivans. As for charge time, many vehicles can be up to 80 percent charged in less than 30 minutes and because they have fewer moving parts than gas-powered cars, they require less maintenance and no oil changes.
Finally, they continue to become more affordable, especially when paired with rebates and tax-incentives.
Haywood EMC is working to increase the public chargers in our communities — including a DC Fast Charger that was installed along I-40 in Haywood County in 2022. Haywood EMC is taking steps to make it more convenient to drive an electric vehicle with rebates on installing chargers in your home as well as offering special EV electric rates!
