Ergon Energy has developed a new strategy to support an expected increase in customer electric vehicle (EV) uptake, with EVs having the potential to provide significant benefits to both customers and utilities.
Ergon’s innovative EV trial found high participant acceptance of EVs, lower running costs than petrol or diesel vehicles and even a reluctance to hand them back at the end of the trial.
Customers in the US share the same sentiments, with growing customer acceptance and satisfaction with EVs.
EVs present an opportunity for low cost, low carbon transport, and for energy diversity and security in transportation.
The range of EVs available in Australia is growing. Read more about the strategy here.
