This time frame was calculated based on the time frame it took horse and buggies to disappear in the early 1900s. ” If EVs catch on as fast as the researchers project, it could reduce oil use by 21 million barrels a day and cut CO2 emissions 3.2 billion tons a year — equivalent to 60 percent of total U.S. emissions today”.

At Ivey Homes we are already gearing up for this movement by providing a 240 volt dedicated circuit in ALL of our garages. The state of Georgia is preparing for this transition as well, serving as an electric vehicle (EV) friendly state and a top-rated market nationwide for electric and plug-in vehicles. How soon do you think consumers will switch to electric?
