EV drivers have a lot to be thankful for: Volta and sponsors provide 1.8 million miles in charging

 

HONOLULUwww.VoltaCharging.com – Volta Industries (Volta) today announced as of Nov. 1 it has given away 1.8 million miles of charging in the past three years, through thousands of free charging sessions via its 26 Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations across Hawaii, part of the Volta Network. Volta now operates more than 80 charging stations nationwide, in Hawaii, California and Arizona.

 

“Hawaii EV drivers have embraced the renewable technology electric cars offer, demonstrating the public’s need for EV charging stations,” said Arden Penton, Volta Director of Media and Operations.  “Thanks to our sponsors, EV drivers have saved the equivalent of $240,000 in gasoline charges, offsetting 1.7 million pounds of carbon dioxide in Hawaii alone.  We are proud to make a substantial environmental impact.”
