E15What's Fueling the Growth of E15?
E15 ethanol blend expected at nearly 2,000 locations by 2018
With its 2012 introduction, E15 became the highest concentration ethanol blend available for use in most traditional gasoline-powered vehicles. But it raised a lot of eyebrows. Consumers, it was theorized, might confuse E15 with other ethanol blends, put it in the wrong vehicle or not understand its purpose at all.

midwestMidwest EVOLVE Project
The U.S. Department of Energy awarded a three-year grant program, the Midwest Electric Vehicle Opportunities: Learning, eVents, Experience (EVOLVE) project which is a partnership between the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest and eight Midwestern Clean Cities coalitions in seven states. The purpose of the project is to educate consumers, as well as public and private fleets, about the performance and environmental advantages of electric vehicles. 
With this grant program we are able to host and attend events that provide a hands-on experience to view and test drive a variety of locally available EVs, which helps consumers and fleets to determine the best vehicle(s) and charging options for their personal and/or fleet needs. 

Interested in hosting an event or ride and drive at your workplace? Not sure a ride and drive is right for you? Learn more here or contact our office at 414-221-4958.
