National Drive Electric Week kicks off on September 25, and Pee Dee Electric is joining this nationwide celebration to highlight the many benefits of driving electric.

Electric vehicles (EVs) have a lot to offer our member-consumers, including increased convenience and cost savings, decreased maintenance, and a better driving experience. They also provide community benefits, like helping the environment, strengthening the economy, and supporting a more efficient electric grid.

Today’s EVs offer near-instant torque, meaning fast acceleration and more response behind the wheel. There are sleek options to fit any driver, from sedans and trucks to SUVs and minivans. As for charge time, many vehicles can be up to 80 percent charged in less than 30 minutes, and because they have fewer moving parts than gas-powered cars, they require less maintenance and no oil changes. Finally, they continue to become more affordable, especially when paired with rebates, tax incentives, and a low-interest loan available to cooperative members through the Electric Federal Cooperative Credit Union.

Pee Dee Electric is taking steps to make it more convenient than ever to drive an electric vehicle. We partner with other electric cooperatives across North Carolina to build an electric vehicle charging network that allows EV drivers to travel throughout our state easily to the communities co-ops are proud to call home. This network includes the Level 2 charging station installed at The Berry Patch in Ellerbe and the DC fast charger located at our corporate office.

Our cooperative also offers special rebates and rates to EV drivers, including a one-time rebate credit of $150 on your power bill when you purchase your EV. If you’re considering driving electric, don’t hesitate to contact us at 704-694-2114 for more information or visit
