Electric Vehicle Sales Skyrocket & US Energy Dept Wants More, More, More

While the raw numbers are still a bit on the small side, electric vehicle sales in the US jumped 128% from 2012 to 2014, and the US Energy Department is determined to kick that momentum into high gear. In the latest development, the agency is calling on the nation’s electric utility industry for an assist. The new partnership was just announced earlier this week by Energy Secretary Ernst Moniz at the annual convention of the Edison Electric Institute in New Orleans.
