Municipal Electric Vehicle Readiness Toolkit Series: Municipal Fleet

October 1 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The Municipal EV Readiness Toolkit 12-Week Program Module 3: Municipal Fleet will help Public Works, Finance, and Purchasing departments learn how to electrify their fleets and develop town-wide, comprehensive electrification plans to reach 30% electric by 2030.

We encourage all course participants to join us for Module 3 and learn how through the modules will work together to support and develop an individualized, town-wide, transportation electrification plan.

Your leadership is essential to this process. We appreciate you taking time out of your day to participate and join the 2020 Municipal EV Readiness Toolkit Cohort.
