Leaders for Clean Air receives $20,000 UCAIR grant to help Utah Workplaces install EV chargers

Leaders for Clean Air, a Salt Lake City non-profit, working in partnership with Rocky Mountain Power, with a mission to improve air quality by encouraging electric vehicle adoption along the Wasatch Front, announced today the award of a $20,000 grant from UCAIR.

The grant funds will be used in support of the UCAIR EV Hardware Assistance Program, which provides credits to help small businesses, local governments, and non-profit organizations obtain workplace electric vehicle chargers at little to no cost.

“We greatly appreciate this award and UCAIR’s continued partnership,” said LFCA founding board member and Packsize CEO Hanko Kiessner. “When companies provide workplace charging, employees receive the benefit of a zero-emissions commute, and the rest of us breathe a little easier. This grant gives LFCA the ability to promote workplace charging among small businesses wanting to go electric but previously unable to do so due to cost.”

Leaders for Clean Air also administers Rocky Mountain Power’s Rebate Incentive program, which provides an incentive of up to 75 percent to eligible businesses and multifamily developments purchasing charging hardware. Together, these two programs address barriers to electric vehicle adoption in Utah and accomplish the goal of advancing zero tailpipe emissions along the Wasatch Front at little to no cost.
