The Lebanon Energy Advisory Committee (LEAC) has started a new subcommittee to help travelers transition to electric vehicles (EV’s). The price of EV’s plummeting, their range is growing in leaps and bounds, but the infrastructure is not yet totally developed to charge these cars. The City is thinking about how to help people make the transition.
LEAC member Meghan Butts is the new committee chair. Meghan works for the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission and has just finished her Master's thesis on EV policy in rural NH.
On the agenda for the committee is the discussion of the Volkswagen settlement funds, analysis of options to transition City vehicles to EV’s, and options for developing EV infrastructure throughout the city. The subcommittee’s schedule is currently the 2nd Thursday of the month at 4:00 PM and it usually meets on the 5th floor of Lebanon City Hall. Meeting agendas are posted with LEAC agendas in the Agenda Center.
This subcommittee, like all LEAC and other City committees, is open to the public. Everyone with an interest in LEAC’s work should feel wholeheartedly welcome to attend.
