Eco is everywhere in 2019, and for good reason. The road is no exception as drivers are opting for electric-fueled models. At 2001 Clarendon, we offer apartments with EV charging in Arlington, so you can leave home with a full battery.

Are you thinking of making the switch to electric? Here are a few reasons why you should consider opting for battery life over heading to the gas station.

Reduced Exhaust Emissions

As more people drive electric cars, fewer people are driving petroleum operated vehicles creating air pollution from their exhaust emissions. Electric cars generate no exhaust emissions, decreasing your output of greenhouse gases.

Recycled Materials

In an attempt to be more eco-friendly, manufacturers are using more recycled materials to produce electric vehicles. One such vehicle is the Ford Focus Electric car, which is made from recycled materials and padding from bio-based materials. Another is the Nissan Leaf, of which the interior and bodywork are partly made from recycled materials.

Renewable Energy

You can use renewable energy to recharge your EV, which will enable you to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions even more. Recharging an EV from a solar PV system during the daytime instead of from the grid. GreenPower can also be purchased from an electricity retailer. Therefore, you can still help reduce greenhouse gas emissions even if you recharge your EV from the grid.

Longer Lasting Batteries

The batteries do not last forever, but they also do not need to be replaced as often as other vehicles. Most car manufacturers provide at least an 8-year warranty on batteries for when they finally need replacing.

At 2001 Clarendon, we offer a variety of eco-friendly amenities, including our charging stations, that will help you put your best green foot forward. Contact us today to learn more!
