Navy and Marine Corps to lease 205 new EVs

Kia Soul EV Nissan LEAF

The California Energy Commission and the US Navy have formed a partnership to modernize energy resources at Navy and Marine Corps bases. The agreement, which implements recommendations made by the Governor’s Military Council last year, includes initiatives to deploy both renewable energy and electric vehicles.

The Navy and Marine Corps will lease 205 new EVs for use at California installations, which the CEC says is the largest implementation of EVs by the federal government to date.

This appears to be a scaled-down version of an earlier proposal – in January, the Navy solicited bids to lease between 400 and 600 EVs.

“California and the Navy are taking action to boost energy efficiency and curb our dependence on fossil fuels,” said Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. “This agreement will help expand renewable energy at military bases.”

      RE: “No such a thing as a Plug-In Electric Vehicle with Zero Emission. Not Now or Ever in the Future.”

      Guess you’re not familiar with WIND, SOLAR, or HYDRO energy? While not a 100% all the time, these sources continue to grow in both capacity and the overall percent of time used.

      Yep, these sources pretty much already the future, as are already the fastest growing energy sources!
