USA: New Electric Charging Stations Open in Salt Lake

Helping to kick off Alternative Fuel Vehicle Awareness Month, Utah Paperbox unveiled five new electric vehicle-charging stations at its new facility in Salt Lake City today. The company’s President, Steve Keyser, says his goal is to see 10 percent of his workforce in alternative fuel vehicles by the year 2020.

“I realize that the air quality in this valley has gotten substantially worse, particularly over the last ten to fifteen years. And I can’t leave; I’m here, so I’ve got no choice but to try to make it better. I believe I can, and I’ve seen it done in California,” he says.

Utah Paperbox’s five charging stations were funded with a portion of Utah Clean Cities Coalition’s $14.9 million dollar American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant, as well as the state’s clean fuel vehicle grant and loan program. Cody Stewart, the Governor’s Energy Advisor, says joint efforts like this will help Utah reach its 10-year energy goals.
