PSAs in Action: Connecticut Leading the Way...
Promoting SmartWay certified vehicles and the Green Vehicle Guide are important components of Connecticut's 2013 Comprehensive Energy Strategy. In addition to including SmartWay content and links on their climate change web page Exit and social media sites, Connecticut is also displaying SmartWay posters at DMV offices, as well as driving schools across the state.
One easy, low cost way to encourage the purchase of more efficient cars and trucks is to provide an incentive to people who buy SmartWay vehicles. Take a look at a few incentive programs at work around the country:
- Universities and Non-Profits -
- Clemson University Exit provides preferred parking to employees who own a SmartWay certified vehicle.
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology Exit provides parking permit discounts to students and employees who drive SmartWay Elite vehicles.
- University of Montana Exit has a “Go Green” permit program.
- The Cleveland Clinic provides financial and parking incentives to employees who purchase SmartWay vehicles for their personal use.
- Municipalities - The City of Miami Beach Exit provides discounts on parking permits for residents, and discounts at city garages for those who commute into the city.
- Private Sector – Many companies like Sprint Exit have “greened their fleet” by requiring that the majority of company cars be SmartWay certified.
