Thumbs up: Sustainable Legacy

The latest chapter in the ever-evolving story of sustainability in Indianapolis unfolded this week with the announcement that, with the help of a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, Indianapolis Power & Light Co. will install 26 charging stations for the city's expanding fleet of electric/hybrid plug-in vehicles at three of the city vehicle fleet locations. "IPL's participation in our electric vehicle initiative is crucial to our plan to transition away from foreign-oil dependence and save about $12,000 over the life of each city vehicle," Mayor Greg Ballard said in a news release announcing the gift, adding the stations will enable the city to begin its fleet upgrade with the goal be completely "post-oil" by 2025. Officials estimate that $1 will cover the cost of carrying one of the city's all-electric vehicles for about 100 miles.
