Bedford 2030 Launches EV 2030: A New Personal Vehicle Emissions Tool
Sneak Peak and Reception: March 7th Town Board Meeting
Bedford2030 is excited to announce the launch of a proprietary new online tool, “EV 2030”, to help Bedford community members understand the impact of the miles they drive. Bedford 2030 will be offering a preview of this innovative development at the Bedford Town Board meeting on March 7th at 6pm. A light reception will follow the presentation, and the community is invited to join.
Using EV 2030, residents can track the actual miles that they drive, the greenhouse gas emissions from those miles and also the cost to drive year over year. Additionally, the tool addresses frequently asked questions about vehicle pollution and has tips and resources on how to make the transition to electric vehicles.
Visit the website to learn your car’s impact on Bedford’s environment.
Here’s what you can learn from EV 2030:
- Average numbers you drove in the last few years
- How much you spent on gas or electricity for the miles you drove
- How much CO2 your car produced each year
- The environmental equivalents to your miles driven
- Answers to many commonly asked questions about making the switch to an electric car – from makes and models to charging to state and federal rebate information!
Approximately half of the greenhouse gas emissions in our community can be attributed to the cars and vehicles we drive. In order to achieve our climate action goals and make the air we breathe much healthier, we need to dramatically decrease pollution from gas powered vehicles. This tool is a game-changer in terms of understanding your own personal transportation footprint and exploring cleaner alternatives.
This tool is currently only available for vehicles registered in the town of Bedford. However, Bedford 2030 won a grant from the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute to pilot EV 2030 in Bedford with the ultimate goal of optimizing it for expansion to other communities. We are very appreciative of their support in this project.
The New York State Pollution Prevention Institute is a partnership between several institutions including the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, with a statewide reach. NYSP2I’s goal is to make the state more sustainable for workers, the public, the environment and the economy through pollution prevention.
