Dear valued Menlo Park business member,

I am writing to you today to follow up about my previous email which I sent
to you on July 25th about installing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging
stations on your businesses property. After receiving no response from you,
I wanted to contact you again to remind of this opportunity and once again
offer our assistance in this process.

As I explained before, through the Bay Area Air District funding program
called CHARGE, up to 75% of the costs associated with purchasing,
installing, and maintaining an EV charging stations can be covered. We
believe that installing an EV station will have many benefits for your
business, including collected revenue from the fee to charge, attraction
for customers, and public recognition as a “green” business. Installing an
EV station will help attract the traffic which passes through Menlo Park
and may bring them to your business. With your support, we can help improve
our community’s carbon footprint and be one step closer to reaching our
goal of carbon neutrality, while supporting your business. If you are
interested or have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Grant Johnson
