Electric car infrastructure

Tesla charging stations, shown, are at Whole Foods in Jackson. 

The town of Jackson has saved an estimated $2.3 million in energy costs by trimming local government’s use of fuel, electricity, natural gas and propane between 2006 and 2020.

Those reductions in energy consumption also avoided emitting some 2,900 tons of carbon dioxide, one of three main types of heat-trapping greenhouse gases linked to climate change.
