Con Edison plugs in electric vehicle website

New York City, April 21, 2011 — Con Edison has launched a new website to help people learn more about electric vehicles, how to keep them charged properly and how to decide which type best serves their travelling needs.

An electric vehicle is any car that uses an electric motor for propulsion. Electric vehicles fall into four categories: extended-range, battery, plug-in hybrid and hybrid.

These cars, except for the hybrid, can charge by using one of three methods: a standard 120-volt outlet, a 208-240 volt unit, or a public charging station. The new website has more information about charging requirements.

Con Edison introduced the new website as part of the company's participation in this year's New York International Auto Show April 22 and May 1 at the Jacob K. Javits Center.  

"Customer education is important to the adoption of electric vehicles," said John Shipman, who heads Con Edison's EV programs. "Con Edison supports the adoption of electric vehicles. These vehicles are environmentally friendly and lessen our dependence on oil."

The company is preparing for individual, early buyers of electric vehicles as well as working closely with businesses that have expressed interest in introducing electric fleets to their operations.
