through programs such as the SRP Plug In and Save EV Rebate™. That means $1,000 back when customers buy or lease a new EV from a local dealership through the end of December 2021, or until the program funds have been depleted. In addition, customers can take a $250 instant rebate on Level 2 chargers purchased from SRP Marketplace. And, EV drivers also can save money by charging their cars during off-peak hours. “Business customers can enjoy rebates up to $50,000 for the electrification of work equipment such as electric forklifts and truck-charging bays. In addition, SRP’s Business EV Charger Rebate offers savings when installing Level 2 networked charging station ports for use by tenants, customers, employees, or fleet vehicles.

“Education about what happens to the items that consumers recycle would be beneficial. Many people wonder if they are really making a difference. If they do not feel the importance of what they are doing, then most likely they will not participate. The recycling industry should educate the consumer of the products that are not environmentally safe and why. Advertising education materials, whether digital or hard copy, can go a long way in providing information.” Rick Carter is a former Honeywell employee who is living in Denver with his wife, Marta.

“Also, SRP’s ENERGY STAR® Homes program partners with homebuilders throughout the Valley to ensure new homes are EV-ready and equipped with 220-volt outlets needed for Level 2 EV chargers, which are twice as fast as Level 1 units. Builders are offered a $300 incentive for each home wired for electric vehicle charging along with marketing support to advertise these communities to potential buyers.” For more information on these and other programs, visit www.srpnet.com, and, for the most recent version of SRP’s Sustainability Report, visit www.srpnet.com/sustainability.
