Electric Vehicle program for the state of NJ

Electric Vehicle program for the state of NJ

What problem does it solve? Reduces State's carbon footprint, reduces maintenance cost, reduces fumes, quieter What is your solution and who does it apply to? Replace State's aging vehicle fleet with electric vehicles; it applies to all agencies under the State, especially NJDOT What is the anticipated impact? Saving's across the board - significantly less maintenance, no oil changes, cheaper to drive, no brake changes as frequently as gas vehicles, quieter, no exhaust fumes.

Points

biswarup guha: this would be an ongoing effort, you would replace cars as they age and become too expensive to fix and keep on the road. NYC has been extremely successful at this

Great idea if state budget permits. Would rather first have the backfills addressed so the work gets done.

Kai Feder, I don't think there is a way to respond to someone. DCA has a ton of cars, DCF, Treasury. At one point, the State had a total of 9700 vehicles according to this website but it's back from 2009: https://www.nj.com/news/2009/07/nj_cuts_445_vehicles_from_the.html

This could be an awesome program - what other agencies/departments would do you think would be the best to pilot such an idea?
