Clean Cities Success Stories: Philly Car Share
A new public access electric car fleet in Philadelphia, PA might have even persuaded our founding fathers to embrace energy independence.
Rental car giant Enterprise Holdings recently signed on as one of the Department of Energy’s national clean fleet partners. One of their subsidiaries, Philly Car Share, already has 50 hybrid electric and plug-in vehicles in their fleet, including 18 Chevrolet Volts.
By working together with the city of Philadelphia, the local Clean Cities Coalition, and other key regional partners the Philly Car Share EV’s will be able to take advantage of charging stations that are already popping up across the city of brotherly love.
JAMES CALLAHAM: We think there are a lot of people in the city of Philadelphia that really care about the environment, that want to make sure that we have fuel efficient vehicles that are utilized here in Philadelphia.
Philly Car Share is looking to expand their plug-in and hybrid vehicle fleet to at least 100, saving 65% in yearly fuel costs, making it a true electric car leader for the Keystone State.
