Today, Cisco is participating in the Drive the Dream event organized by the California Plug-In Electric Vehicle (PEV) Collaborative. We are excited to be working with Governor Jerry Brown and other organizations making up the electric vehicle ecosystem to promote the on-going effort to improve the environmental sustainability of our transportation system.  By continuing to elevate and discuss the issues and advantages in today’s electric vehicle market, we fuel future innovation and a more sustainable transportation system.

Cisco is committed to promoting the use of PEVs amongst our employees by providing a free service for employees and their guests to charge their cars on our campuses.  Since the launch of our workplace electric vehicle charging program in 2011, we estimate our employees have saved over 75,000 pounds of CO2 and 14,000 gallons of fuel just from the charging provided at our office locations. Building upon our initial installation of nine stations in 2011, as of August 15, 2013, our program had grown to 409 registered employees using 57 available stations on our San Jose Campus.
