Electricity. We all know it. We all use it. And now we’re becoming more familiar with a next generation application: electric vehicles.
The rise in electric vehicle demand is growing the electric transportation supply chain. Electric power provider company, Duquesne Light, is one of the leaders in advancing this supply chain for consumers and public transportation. The company has made developments in micro-mobility options such as electric bikes and e-scooters, to major public transportation vehicles like Port Authority of Allegheny County’s all-electric buses.
In the past five years, there has been a 480% increase in EV adoption in the Pittsburgh region service territory. The vision is for the Pittsburgh region to continue on a path to equitable electric transportation. People like Sarah Olexsak, a manager of transportation electrification at Duquesne Light, are leading the way.
