Our success story this week takes us to Asheville, North Carolina, where they’re driving on sunshine. Brightfield Transportation Solutions has deployed over 100 EV charging stations in North Carolina and beyond. Some are stand alones, while others, like this one at earth fare, a regional grocer, integrate solar power.

The 8 solar panels can provide up to 15,000 miles of zero emissions, solar powered driving every year.

STAN CROSS: “If you drive an EV and you’re powered off the average grid mix in America, you’re going to see a 60 percent reduction in your greenhouse gas emissions. If you go to driving on sunshine, it’s 100 percent reduction.”

JOHN DAVIS: Retailers, universities, and cities purchase Brightfields to attract EVs, showcasing their clean energy commitment and building good will. With help from the land of Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition, more stakeholders are investing in EV charging stations to keep the Tarheel state’s highlands bright.
