When businesses, governments, utilities and non-profits collaborate to redesign and improve the mode of transportation in a country raised on fossil fuels, stimulate job growth in a slumping economy, and improve the air quality in a region bordering on non-attainment (according to National Ambient Air Quality Standards) – only excellence can be achieved. When this can be done rapidly and replicated regionally, success is accomplished. In just over two years, an industry – government collaboration called Get Ready Central Florida (GRCF) went from pioneering the electric vehicle (EV) movement in Central Florida, to becoming one of 13 cities recognized as a NATIONAL LEADER in electric transportation (according to the Rocky Mountain Institute’s “project get ready campaign”).
In January, 2013 – GRCF became the “Electric Transportation Arm” of the Central Florida Clean Cities Coaliton www.centralfloridacleancities.com. Together we aim to improve Electric Transportation education throughout Central Florida.
