The Electrification Coalition is also behind Drive Electric Northern Colorado, launched in February to create a model electric vehicle community in the cities of Fort Collins and Loveland, including Colorado State University.

Coalition chairman Seifi Ghasemi, who is CEO of the chemical company Rockwood Holdings Inc, said weaning the country from oil is good for national security, the economy and the environment.

“Even if we convert 10 percent of them [drivers] it will go a long way. The important thing is just to net it started,” Ghasemi said.
