Dear City Council Members and Staff,
Thank you for recognizing National Drive Electric Week yesterday with a proclamation, and for co-sponsoring the EV Expo last Saturday - part of the NDEW series of events across the nation promoting electric cars. The event was a big success; you can find photos here<https://www.facebook.com/menlospark2025/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1772718679676082>.

The City and staff must be commended for all of the support for electric vehicles that are rapidly replacing carbon emitting fossil fuel vehicles. In particular, the new public EV Charging Stations are a great achievement. Programs like this have helped make Menlo Park one of the top 10 Electric Car Cities, according to a report out this week by the International Council for Clean Transportation. ICCT's The Ascent of Electric Vehicles in California<http://bit.ly/2cRoz2p> finds that 14 percent of new car purchases in Menlo Park are electric models. Please refer to the chart attached to see how Menlo Park compares to other cities - few cities achieve higher rates of EV purchasing.

As we work together to address climate change by reducing carbon emissions, we hope to see the City transition to an electric vehicle fleet. The Police Department has already taken positive steps with new electric motorcycles. Every year, more electric vehicle models come available, as the state continues generous rebates, grants and incentives supporting EVs.

Congratulations for showing significant leadership supporting EVs thus far.
Warm regards,

Diane Bailey | Executive Director
