Is EV Charging in the Ethical Society’s Future? A Discussion Hosted Jointly by the Board and the CAN! Team

November 12, 2023 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am

We all know that the burning of fossil fuels has resulted in climate change and that we must invest in cleaner sources of energy. Many members, friends, and visitors at the Society are now driving electric vehicles (EV) or plug-in hybrids, and the percentage is almost certain to grow in the near future. Right now, the Ethical Society, as a business customer of Ameren, has the opportunity to apply for a grant to subsidize up to 50% of the installation of EV chargers on our property. This idea excites the Board and the Climate Action Now! team. However, there are many questions about how this might be done. We will discuss this opportunity–its feasibility, costs, installation, and maintenance– with you at the 9:45 Forum on Sunday, November 12.

Among the questions we will be posing:

  • Should we install any chargers at all?
  • If yes, how many?
  • How fast should the chargers be?
  • Where might the chargers be installed for greatest efficiency and minimum cost and disruption?
  • Should the Society provide the electricity for free or charge for use?
  • How should we pay for the installation and ongoing maintenance costs?

We want to hear your thoughts and your questions before proceeding. Please join us.
