Ford Motor to expand electric plug-in stations - for its employeesStaff writer ▼ | October 15, 2015
Ford Motor is expanding efforts to provide more workplace charging stations to employees across the United States and Canada.
Electric cars At 43 Ford offices and manufacturing facilities
There are plans to install 20 more in the near future, with ongoing discussions to increase the number in the long term.
Since installing the first workplace charging station in 2014, Ford and its employees have saved more than 6,000 gallons of gas, enough to fill a Ford Fusion Energi 428 times. The system is also capable of diverting 70 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually when using green energy sources.
More than 349 Ford employees are using the charging stations, which have delivered nearly 92,000 kilowatt-hours of energy, enough to power up to 10 homes annually. ■
