The Largo, Florida, Police Department is revving up and patrolling the streets on two new Zero electric motorcycles, funded in part with a Duke Energy grant.
The Department received $7,000 from Duke Energy earlier this year to aid in the purchase of the motorcycles. These motorcycles will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve local air quality.
In addition to helping to fund the electric motorcycles for the police department, Duke Energy’s Park & Plug program installed about 30 electric vehicle charging ports in Largo, including 13 EV charging ports at seven city-owned locations.
“In addition to the Zero electric motorcycles, we have added 23 hybrid Ford Interceptor SUVs this year,” said Largo Police Chief Jeffrey Undestad.
