Free Electric Vehicle Charging Stations for Businesses Now Available through Leaders for Clean Air
Expansion of Utah’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure
made possible through partnership with Rocky Mountain Power.
SALT LAKE CITY — October 4, 2017 — Leaders for Clean Air (LFCA) today announced a partnership with Rocky Mountain Power to increase the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in Utah. Available immediately, LFCA is providing qualified businesses across the Wasatch Front a Level 2 EV Charger, free of charge. An online form is provided to register.
Workplace EV charging stations address current market barriers to the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles. Studies show that when workplace charging is available, consumers are six times more likely to drive an EV. LFCA works to encourage adoption of zero-emissions vehicles to result in cleaner air.
Rocky Mountain Power is leading the cleaner technology trend for a healthier environment by providing incentives for an EV charging infrastructure and educating drivers on the benefits of electric vehicles. Through a partnership with LFCA, businesses along the Wasatch Front have immediate access to Level 2 EV chargers. According to Rocky Mountain Power Electric Vehicles Program Manager Shawn Grant, “Utah’s electric vehicle charging network is expected to grow quite extensively, positioning the state as a nationwide leader in alternative-fuel programs.”
The business model used by LFCA addresses current market barriers to the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles, and accomplishes the goal of advancing zero tailpipe emissions along the Wasatch Front. The non-profit organization was conceived and led by Packsize CEO Hanko Kiessner, who partnered with Utah Paperbox President Steve Keyser and 3Form CEO Talley Goodson to form Leaders for Clean Air.

ABOUT LEADERS FOR CLEAN AIR
In 2012, Packsize® International CEO Hanko Kiessner decided to take on the issue of air quality along the Wasatch Front. Recognizing the Utah’s poor air quality while growing Packsize in Salt Lake City, Kiessner looked at the viability of switching to electric vehicles (EVs) to help curb pollution. He began driving an electric car and then wanted others to enjoy the experience and benefits, so he took the idea to the workplace. Today, Packsize has installed more than 35 EV chargers to keep pace with employee demand at its On Demand Packaging® headquarters. Kiessner joined Steve Keyser and Talley Goodson to form Leaders for Clean Air launching the non-profit, private-sector initiative in 2015.
