Electric Utility Vehicle Program Presents to Lodi Rotary
Lodi Electric Utility Business Development staff was invited to speak to Rotarians about Lodi Electric Utility's Electric Vehicle program on Monday, February 14, 2022, at Richmaid restaurant. Leading up to the presentation, staff interviewed Lodi and Stockton car dealerships to learn more about their challenges and opportunities with California’s statewide zero-emission transportation electrification goals for the future. Among the challenges, car dealerships said price, low battery range, lack of public chargers, and lack of model variation for the lower to middle-income buyer were chief concerns. Opportunities, on the other hand, included offering higher rebates and simplifying the rebate process, making it easier for the consumer.
