Sonoma West Times & News | October 22, 2018
Sonoma Clean Power (SCP), the public electricity provider for Sonoma and Mendocino counties, is working with Uber, the San Francisco-based transportation platform, to incentivize local drivers to switch to electric vehicles (EV).
Uber driver-partners that use an all-electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid will now be eligible to receive an additional $1 for every trip by signing up for the EV Champions program. Participating driver-partners can earn an extra $30 for 30 trips each week until Jan. 2, 2019 thanks to the partnership between SCP and Uber.
At SCP, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to achieve our mission of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Sonoma and Mendocino counties. Because Uber is already changing the culture of transportation by promoting alternative ways to travel, we thought a partnership to encourage drivers to switch to clean, electric vehicles made a lot of sense.
