Electrify Fleets & Support Charging

Cities Charging Ahead

Electrifying your local government's vehicle fleets can be an excellent way to save money and meet your sustainability goals. Let’s go!

A cohort of 28 cities worked together across Minnesota to explore electric vehicle (EV) readiness. Participants received technical assistance focused on actions and best practices to accelerate the adoption of EVs.

If not for CCA, Faribault would not have made meaningful progress on our transition to EVs. City staff and the Council love our new electric vehicles in my department. Now other departments are looking into EVs.
