Minnesota Power hosts car show for Drive Electric Week
Friday, September 23, 2022
Minnesota Power is highlighting the benefits of electric vehicles by hosting an EV Car Show in Duluth’s Lincoln Park Craft District as it joins energy providers and other organizations across the nation to mark National Drive Electric Week.
Support for EVs, including expanding access to public charging stations, special rates for EV charging and rebates for home chargers, is part of Minnesota Power’s EnergyForward vision for a carbon-free energy future by 2050. The company’s vision also includes adding more renewable sources of energy and investing in infrastructure for managing the delivery of increasing amounts of renewable energy. “Tax credits and other provisions in the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act will accelerate the shift to having more EVs on the road and more quickly deliver the benefits that the electrification of transportation will bring,” said Frank Frederickson, Minnesota Power vice president of Customer Experience and Engineering Services. “Drivers can fuel their EVs with energy that is increasingly carbon-free and we’re committed to making it more convenient and affordable to drive EVs across the region through easy and equitable access to charging stations and special programs.” National Drive Electric Week, Sept. 23-Oct. 2, is a nationwide celebration to raise awareness of the many benefits of all-electric and plug-in vehicles.
