SALT LAKE CITY—December 19, 2017—Rocky Mountain Power today awarded Packsize International with a $111,280 incentive check to recognize the availability of 50 Level 2 electric vehicle chargers on premise, creating the largest electric vehicle charging installation in Utah.
Held at the On Demand Packaging® manufacturing and technology leader’s international headquarters, located at 3760 W. Smart Pack Way in Salt Lake City, the ribbon-cutting ceremony recognized the company’s commitment to clean air. More than 25 Packsize employees now commute in an emission-free vehicle.
During the ceremony, Leaders for Clean Air (LFCA) presented Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes and his office with an electric vehicle charging station, indicating the state government’s commitment to Utah’s clean air initiative. Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski along with other LFCA founding members provided updates on the clean air advancements and future goals for Salt Lake’s airshed.
Through a partnership with LFCA, Rocky Mountain Power provides businesses along the Wasatch Front with immediate access to Level 2 EV chargers. The RMP Incentive Program provides up to a 75 percent rebate to incentivize Utah businesses to install chargers at their establishments. Since the program launched in June 2017, 129 new electric vehicle chargers have been installed along the Wasatch Front. The program is a positive step forward in accomplishing Utah’s clean technology trend for a healthier environment.
According to Rocky Mountain Power Electric Vehicle Program Manager Shawn Grant, Utah’s electric vehicle charging network is expected to grow extensively over the next several years.
“Innovative leaders like Packsize demonstrate that electric vehicles can become a reality for Utah drivers,” said Grant. “In the last few years, Utah experienced a strong adoption rate for electric vehicles. We need to create a charging network to meet that demand. We need to position Utah as a nationwide leader in alternative fuel programs.”
