Mayor Knox White was joined by members of the City’s Green Ribbon Advisory Committee to celebrate the addition of a Level III charger to the City’s electric vehicle infrastructure on May 22. The DC Fast Charger, which rapidly charges electric vehicles (EVs) with direct current electricity, is the fastest charger available. The charger was installed through the Nissan EV Advantage Program, which donates equipment and services to eligible site hosts throughout the country to subsidize the cost to install the chargers. The City worked with ChargeUp, LLC, a preferred EV infrastructure installation partner of Nissan North America on the installation.
Sustainability is the process of addressing environmental responsibility, economic development, and social equity in a manner that balances existing demands for products and services with the need to protect and enhance the community’s environmental resources. “Sustainable” is an adjective describing those practices that encompass sustainability in their implementation. Sustainable strategies satisfy the needs of the present, local community while acknowledging and considering how actions impact future generations and global concerns.
