Each year, American passenger cars and trucks burn 121 billion gallons of gasoline and spew upwards of 3 trillion pounds of carbon pollution into the air.. These emissions are from both the vehicle tailpipes and the “upstream” emissions from extracting, refining, and transporting the oil to our vehicles.. Our dangerous dependence on oil has resulted in many catastrophes the years, and every day, we send more than $500 million abroad to pay for oil, increasing our national debt and dependence on many nations hostile to our policies.
Plug-in electric vehicles (EVs), which require no gasoline and emit no pollution from their tailpipes, present a critical opportunity to slash pollution, reduce our dependence on oil, create American jobs, and improve national security!
You will learn about state rebates for purchasing an EV or charging unit, the state tax rebate or credit for converting vehicles to plug-in, local or state building code change that mandates new construction include EV-ready wiring, waiver of emissions inspections or sales tax for EVs, information on which EVs and incentives are available here in NY. And finally, a list of all EV’s and which EV model will work best for you.
There will be models that you can view and experience the beauty of these vehicles.
Please come and learn how you can become part of the solution.
