It’s easy to cringe whenever we see the gas prices rise. It’s been happening, it seems, every day. Now, the city of Grand Junction is looking to find more efficient ways of doing things including driving. The city joined a new project that is promoting the use of electric cars.

It’s called Project FEVER, or Fostering Electric Vehicle Expansion in the Rockies. The goal is to educate the public about the benefits of electric cars and look for ways to accommodate them as they become more popular and available throughout Colorado.

“Normally when I’m down here, I’m not going that fast,” officer Claire Stender said.

Kidding aside, the city’s meter reading car gets the job done perfectly.

“I can get into an area where it would be difficult if I had a regular sized vehicle,” Stender said.

Stender is currently driving the first and only electric vehicle in the city’s fleet, but that soon could change.
