Calculating the Savings Potential of Electric Vehicles

EnergyAdvisor comes with an easy-to-use EV Calculator that compares regular gas fuel economy with that of top EV makes and models.

Electric vehicles are more than a fad; they’re the future. In fact, many energy experts estimate that EVs will comprise about 35% of all auto sales by 2040, thanks to rapidly improving technology and production methods.

As interest continues to rise among our member base, EnergyUnited has implemented several new initiatives to help make the transition toward sustainable transport as smooth as possible. The latest—and perhaps most informative—is our handy EV Calculator, an interactive feature of EnergyAdvisor.

Here’s how to use the EV Calculator to discover the savings potential of electric vehicles.

CREATE A PROFILE

If you haven’t yet, log in to your member portal on our website and create a profile for EnergyAdvisor. This is required to access EnergyAdvisor’s dashboard and its many features.

SELECT THE FEATURE

Once you’re logged in to EnergyAdvisor, select “EV Calculator” near the top of your webpage. You can’t miss it.

SET YOUR CONTROLS

To accurately compare fuel economies, input the average miles you drive per day, your average miles per gallon and the cost per gallon at your local gas station.

CHOOSE YOUR EV

Next, select your electric vehicle of choice and drop it into the comparison chart. The feature includes popular makes and models like the 2017 Chevy Bolt, the 2018 Nissan Leaf and the 2017 Tesla Model 3.

MIND THE SAVINGS

Once you’ve completed steps 1–4, you’ll see the chart populate under “Your Results.” Check out how much you stand to save each month by making the switch. Then go from there.
