About the EV Subcommittee

Electric vehicles (EVs) are an important part of meeting the Lebanon Energy Advisory Committee’s (LEAC’s) charge to help reduce energy use, increase energy efficiency, explore alternative energy usage, and reduce pollution in order to benefit the City both fiscally and environmentally. LEAC’s Electric Vehicle (EV) Subcommittee aims to help Lebanon achieve its resolution to meet the greenhouse gas reduction goals of the Paris Climate Accord: a minimum 25% reduction in emissions by 2025 and an 80% reduction by 2050. One important way to do that is to shift our modes of transportation away from fossil-fuel cars and trucks to EVs.

Why EVs?

  • Throughout New England, transportation emits carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) more than any other sector of society. The same is true in Lebanon. According to the 2012 Lebanon Master Plan, Lebanon’s commercial sector is the largest carbon emitter here, and 70% of that is commute vehicle emissions. 
  • EVs can run on clean, affordable, domestic electricity.
  • EVs save money in the long run. Although purchase prices for some EVs can be higher than for some internal-combustion vehicles, costs for fuel and maintenance are dramatically lower with EVs, producing considerable savings overall.
  • The U.S. auto industry is shifting to EVs. Lebanon needs to be ready for them.
  • EVs are fun to drive!
