What: Efficiency Maine today debuted another electric vehicle (EV) educational video — “How to Use EV Public Chargers” — featuring Maine humorist and car enthusiast Tim Sample. The quasi-state agency has produced a series of educational videos that will be released weekly throughout October and November on newly redesigned Efficiency Maine web pages. The videos complement a rich array of educational materials about EVs, rebates, and charging infrastructure to help Maine consumers learn more about and become more comfortable with EVs.
Efficiency Maine recently launched the EV video campaign with an introductory segment titled “Go the Distance in an Electric Vehicle,” which features Sample talking about the “new cars” on the roads in Maine — EVs. Sample lists some of the benefits of EVs placed in the context of the state’s goals to reduce carbon emissions. The video series is displayed on a new “carousel” feature at the top of the redesigned Efficiency Maine web page, which encourages visitors to click through and view videos as new ones are added to the series.
The website already includes an instructional video on the different ways to pay for a charge at any public charging station, and where and how to find EV chargers. Other videos under production will describe the different types of charger plugs; considerations on charging at home; how to maximize a charge, and “one-pedal driving,” which enables drivers to come to a full stop without using the brake pedal.
Who: EV car enthusiasts and others interested in learning more about EVs.
When: Today! The new videos will be released weekly throughout October and November on newly redesigned Efficiency Maine web pages.
Where: Mainers can find extensive information on the refreshed Efficiency Maine EV web pages, including a new guidebook on “How to Select and Install a Home Electric Vehicle Charger,” which provides useful information and tips for current and prospective EV owners. The guide answers common questions about home EV charging, such as:
- What is a Level 2 EV charger?
- Why should I charge my EV at home?
- Where can I buy an EV charger?
- How much does it cost to purchase and install a charger?
