Electric Vehicle (EV)

Corn Belt Energy is proud to support the growing adoption of Electric Vehicles throughout our service territory. The Electric Vehicle (EV) industry has experienced rapid growth over the past few years, and the International Energy Agency predicts that by 2030, there will be anywhere from 125 to 220 million electric vehicles on the road worldwide*.

As your electric service provider, it is important for us to maintain a working knowledge of the upcoming growth and development within the EV industry. Most EV owners do the majority of their vehicle charging at home, which will mean a growing increase in home energy use. Our goal is to both encourage our members to explore EV’s as a great economical, and environmentally-friendly, option for transportation, as well as stay ahead of the potential energy growth, in order to prevent potential strain on our electric grid.

In June 2018, Corn Belt Energy purchased our own Electric Vehicle, a Chevy Bolt, and have been studying the driving and charging patterns. We hope to share our findings with you as we go. Please consider signing up for our EV mailing list, whether you are a current owner, prospective owner, or just curious about EV’s in general.

I am interested in finding out more about electric vehicle programs and rates from Corn Belt Energy.
