As prices for gas continue to be volatile, along with the price of vehicles, the time may be right to consider purchasing an electric vehicle.

The selection of EVs on the market continues to grow, with nearly every major dealer offering, or planning to offer, an electric option. In addition, the battery range on these vehicles are quickly moving towards the 400 mile marker, making them competitive with most gasoline powered counterparts. 

A service visit for an EV costs much less than its gasoline-powered counterparts, including just tire rotation, air filter replacement , wiper blade replacement and topping off the washer fluid. And if you are looking for a clean alternative, EVs produce zero tailpipe emissions. This is why many national companies, including Amazon, are converting their fleets to electric vehicles. 

If you are in the market for a car, we encourage you to include electric vehicles in your research. Our website,, has information available to help you with that decision. In addition, if you purchase a new electric vehicle this year, you will receive a $30 bill credit each month for a year. If you install a Level 2 charger in your home, you’ll receive a $250 bill credit. And if you don’t want to charge at home, Tri-County EMC has charging stations available at both our Gray and Eatonton office locations, free of charge. 

If you have questions about electric vehicles, give Jonathan Stewart, our EV Representative, a call at 478.986.8119.
