The Wall Street Journal has announced that GM has donated a Chevrolet Volt to the Colorado Conservation Trust. This move is one of many that aligns GM with the conservation efforts that today’s environmental enthusiasts have spearheaded in an attempt to preserve natural resources. Steve Bankert, whose conservation efforts have significantly improved his local community, applauds the generosity of GM, as well as the company’s dedication to improving environmentally-friendly technology. As such, Steve Bankert is encouraging consumers to take advantage of this technology, which can boost conservation without requiring them to change their everyday lives.
According to the aforementioned press release, the Chevrolet Volt is a highly environmentally-friendly product. From efficiency to meeting the needs of consumers, the Volt has proven a wonderful addition to the automobile industry’s lineup of energy efficient vehicles. This particular automobile has a driving range of 379 miles, the first 35 of which are achieved through the use of electricity, which is both gas and tailpipe-emissions free. The battery is a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery. Once the battery becomes low on charge, a gas-powered engine kicks in. On a full tank of gas, this engine can propel drivers another 344 miles.
Although the Volt’s battery-powered operation only lasts 35 miles, the press release reports that it powers the majority of miles that drivers log: “Volt owners have travelled more than 65 million miles since the vehicle launched late last year. Roughly two-thirds of those miles were powered by grid electricity.”
Steve Bankert understands that this new technology can have a powerful effect on conservation efforts. As such, he is encouraging consumers to choose products that contribute to conservation—especially when, as in the case of the Volt, they do not require a change in lifestyle.
“Renewable sources of energy should become an important aspect of everyday life,” commented Steve Bankert, who is known for his conservation efforts on Falls Pond in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. “The planet we leave for our children and grandchildren can be cleaner than the one we grew up in with responsible conservation of our natural resources. New technology continues to improve conservation, and we all need to embrace these technologies and make them a part of our everyday lives. GM is a global leader, and it is they that are in the forefront of conservation innovation.”
