EV education and advocacy organization Plug In America has received a grant from the DOE for a three-year, $5-million consumer education project, the largest grant in the organization’s 15-year history.
This grant is part of a slate of 16 projects to advance transportation electrification that will be funded throught the DOE’s Vehicle Technologies Office to the tune of $32.5 million.
The new funding will enable Plug In America to sponsor more ride-and-drive events; to expand its EV help desk that provides personalized support for consumers’ EV questions; to upgrade PlugStar.com, the organizations EV shopping assistant; to produce more videos and other educational materials; and to add more Spanish-language content to its offerings.
“Our track record of strong EV education, advocacy, and research efforts played no small part in this award,” says Plug In America. “Now, because of this grant, we will be able to reach even more people with our unique consumer education programs on the benefits of driving electric while having an extra focus on underserved and rural communities.”
