EV operating costs are half that of traditional internal combustion energy vehicles, and emissions are 50-100% lower depending on the fuel mix of the energy used to create the electricity. West Chester Borough procures 100% wind energy through the purchase of renewable energy credits (RECs), and the Chestnut Street Garage is powered by on-site solar energy!
