We stand at a moment of great uncertainty for the electric car. With the outcome of the election, we need your help and your commitment now more than ever.
Plug In America has stood firm in its commitment to electric vehicles through a range of political climates; in fair weather and foul. Over many years, we have pushed both Democratic and Republican administrations to be bold in their support of EVs. And the reason we have been successful is that the case for EVs is strong and bipartisan. The benefits that EVs bring to our energy security, the environment, our manufacturing sector, and our economy have not changed at all since the election. Plenty of legislators from both parties, in states red and blue, drive EVs and are strong EV supporters. In fact, the current federal tax credits for EVs and charging infrastructure were both passed by a Republican-led Congress.
Several things that will greatly affect EVs for years may happen quickly after January 20. For starters, we must defend the federal $7,500 EV tax credit. It has been critical to the development of the EV market. However, with the potential infrastructure package to be considered by Congress in the first 100 days, there is also a unique opportunity to have a major federal investment in highway charging infrastructure—and we’ll only have one shot to get it right. To do these things, we are working to put an on-the-ground representative in Washington, D.C. for the first time. But we need you to stand with us.
We are seeking to raise $100,000 by the end of the year to support this effort. Please consider making a contribution today of at least $35 to demonstrate your continuing strong commitment to EVs. And if you can donate $100 or $1,000, I can promise you that it will be money well spent.
