‘Lectric Vehicles Seen on Campus!

The Facilities Management and ITS Departments as well as the University Mail Room are now using electric vehicles.  These vehicles are compact, extremely quiet and have no exhaust smell so they are great for on-campus use.  These low speed vehicles are ‘street legal’ on roads where the speed limit is no more than 35 MPH so they can also be used around town.  Even though they are not zero emission vehicles when pollution from electrical generation is factored in, they are more energy effecient and produce fewer greenhouse gases than petro powered vehicles.  Service costs are also lower since the vehicles are extremely simple.  For instance the brakes are regenereative – they produce electricity to recharge the batteries instead of using disposable brake pads.
