Electric Cars

Our conversation today with Joyce Bodoh, Government Affairs & Demand Response Administrator, with Rappahannock Electric Cooperative included discussion about electric cars (EV). REC purchased their first EV in 2017.

We talked about how they work, the benefits to our environment and our wallets, plus we discussed under what circumstances they might be a good fit for you and your family. Joyce told us about charging stations, who and how they should be installed at your home as well as apps to assist you in locating them during a trip.
