Earth Week event highlights EVs
April 21, 2021
Dairyland employees will participate in an Ask Me Anything ... About My EV event on Saturday, April 24, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the La Crosse City Hall parking lot. Come check out the Dairyland team's 2021 Mustang Mach E, 2019 Nissan Leaf and 2018 Tesla Model 3, in addition to other EVs at the event!
Dairyland’s focus is on reducing economy-wide carbon emissions. Our initiatives to foster beneficial electrification, combined with investments in renewable resources, support this evolution. For example, Dairyland has launched a research project into the capabilities of utilizing an all-electric vehicle for two-way power. The Vehicle to Grid project is part of Dairyland’s investigation of Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems (DERMS) testing an electric vehicle’s ability to feed power back into the grid.
Beyond testing the concept of a “smart” interface between EV and grid, ideally the EV would prove its use in alleviating peak loads by providing energy back to the grid at times of high energy use.
