A diverse group of 18 Minnesota companies, communities, higher education institutions, and community-based organizations have been recognized for their efforts to expand the use of electric vehicles (EVs) in Minnesota.
The inaugural Recharge MN recognition ceremony spotlighting leaders in EV adoption was held as a virtual event on Sept. 22. The event was co-hosted by Recharge America, the Olseth Family Foundation, and Fresh Energy and included Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Commissioner Laura Bishop who served as the event’s Master of Ceremonies.
To receive recognition, Recharge MN participants create an EV Action Plan that outlines steps they are taking to help Minnesotans gain greater access to clean transportation. Participants then commit to share lessons learned and help mentor others.
To be recognized as part of the Recharge MN initiative, participants take one or more actions to promote EVs, including:
- Installing charge stations,
- Supporting outreach and education,
- Incorporating EVs into fleets,
- Integrating EVs into the business practice,
- And/or any other steps as are most appropriate for their particular circumstance.
