As your electric power and energy services provider, we strive to be your source of power and information – that means we want to ensure that members have the knowledge and tools they need to make decisions that will benefit them. And, since electric vehicles are rapidly growing in popularity and more members are driving electric, Union Power offers a number of resources to help make owning an EV convenient and budget-friendly.
We offer tools that will help members answer important questions, such as:
- Is an EV right for me?
- What is the difference between a Hybrid, Plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV), and Battery EV (BEV)?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of operating an EV?
- What incentives are available when purchasing or operating an EV?
- How can my electric cooperative help me?
An Electric Vehicle Calculator is one of many resources that allows members to compare their gas-powered vehicles with various plug-in and hybrid EVs to understand the difference in monthly costs and savings. Members can access this feature by visiting union-power.com.
Another helpful resource is Union Power’s NC Drive Electric Dashboard. This tool gives members a look into the bigger picture of how driving electric impacts their overall savings, the environment, and more! This site also provides information about special rates, tax credits, loans, and rebates available to electric co-op members who own and operate EVs. Members can access this tool by visiting ncdriveelectric.com.
