Soapbox: Fort Collins, Loveland can lead in electric vehicle movement

As the mayors of Fort Collins and Loveland, we are always looking for new ways to move our communities forward. We are proud to announce that our cities are jointly leading an effort to make Northern Colorado the national leader in electric vehicle deployment.

Drive Electric Northern Colorado, or DENC, will turn Fort Collins and Loveland into the leaders of an electric vehicle movement. The goal of the initiative, officially being launched next week, is to get citizens of our cities to use electric vehicles.

DENC is about creating a convenient and concentrated ecosystem able to support electric vehicles as an attractive choice for drivers of all walks of life. It will empower members of our local communities — from individual citizens to restaurants, car dealerships, shopping centers, the Fort Collins and Loveland municipalities, and others — to lead the way.

Let’s say you’re in the market for a new car, and one of the main factors in your decision is saving money on gas. You know that you can reduce your gas bill to zero by purchasing an electric vehicle, or EV, but you also have questions. You have a 20-mile commute to the office every day. Will the vehicle’s charge last long enough to get you there and back? What’s it like to drive an electric vehicle? What about the sticker price? Are there tax credits to help offset the higher upfront cost? What do current electric vehicle drivers have to say?

DENC is about providing solutions to such problems and answers to such questions.
