“Plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) owners are altering the ways they fuel their cars. Rather than a 15-minute visit to a gas station, most PEV owners recharge while at home and plugged-in during the night. To charge them at home overnight, drivers can choose a Level One or Level Two charger option. The decision is based on preference, needs and costs or install. Level Two chargers refuel PEVs much faster than Level One, but require higher installation costs. In some instances, Level One charging doesn’t have installation costs. Level One charging requires a 110/120-volt outlet, the 3-prong plug-type available in some parking areas. It requires 15 amps of steady load to charge roughly 5 miles per hour. 78% of PEV drivers average 15-45 miles of daily driving, which requires 3 to 8 hours of Level One charging.

Level 2 charging requires a 208/240-volt outlet & charges PEVs must faster: 3.3 kW (30 amps) to 19.2 kW (100 amps). Most vehicles currently on the market are only capable of using 30 amps for 3.3 or 6.6 kW charging with a charge rate varying at 8-24mph. Level Two charging is preferred for early buyers of PEVs. The important consideration when selecting charge levels in an MUD environment is the electrical load requirements. The Level One load is smaller, close to a microwave. Level 2 charging will generate a significant new load for the property. In both cases, an owner or renter should hire an electrician to estimate the capacity of the property and to determine if it could be supported.  Single-family homeowners, unlike MUDS, usually have sufficient capacity to support overnight charging and the install of the charging equipment (electric vehicle equipment or EVSE) is a simpler cost and process. The costs of installing EVSE in a MUD parking area may vary greatly and possibly be cost prohibitive. Costs occur at 2 stages of installation:

  • Investing in sufficient electrical capacity to support the additional load of PEV charging: Electrical upgrades, at either within the panel or utility service level, can add installation costs depending on the configuration of the property & the utility that services it.
  • Connecting the EVSE to the property’s electrical system: To obtain electricity to the EVSE, wiring is run through via an electrical panel to the PEV parking spot. Costs maybe significant as the distance between the 2 increases.”  The full article is available here.

An October 10, 2016 article on Recycling Today brought up an interesting story: “The U.S. EPA has proclaimed an contract with High Plains Motors Inc. (HPM) agreeing to alleged hazardous waste violations from to the improperly managing used oil, paint solvents, lacquer thinner, and other such materials at an auto dealership and service in Wolf Point, Montana. As part of the settlement, High Plains will pay penalties of $5,758 and finish a junk vehicle recycling initiative on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. Suzanne Bohan, an EPA regional administrator says that the EPA commends High Plains Motors &Tribal leadership for their decision to work together to safely remove many abandoned cars from the reservation.

Deb Madison, Environmental Manager for the Fort Peck Tribes feels that they look forward to working closely with HPM and the Fort Peck Housing Authority to resolve these environmental problems. The HPM automobile dealership & service center is located on private land just inside the boundaries of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. EPA regulators in 2015 found that the company had violated some aspects of the Resource Conservation & Recovery Act (RCRA) by not labeling used oil reservoirs and not responding to dumping of used oil at the facility. EPA staff also found that the organization erred in properly managing paint solvent wastes, oil/water/antifreeze mixtures, and lacquer at their site. The EPA issued HPM a compliance demand in 2015, and the establishment has now employed measures to get into compliance with hazardous waste laws.

The proclamation resolves HPMs liabilities for the supposed RCRA violations by finalizing a penalty as well as a supplemental environmental program that will recycle aboout 86 abandoned car on the reservation. After seeking feedback from the Fort Peck Assiniboine & Sioux Tribes and EPA, HPM agreed to work with a local scrap company, Trader’s Den, to retrieve abandoned or junk vehicles on Tribal housing-owned land in the Wolf Point and Poplar areas of the reservation. This process will remove possible sources of pollution from the car such as oil, transmission fluid, coolant, brake fluid, gasoline, & batteries. HPM will properly remove or salvage all recoverable material and will place vehicles at a local scrap site for crushing & recycling.

EPA has also been operational with the Fort Peck Tribes and the local communities of Poplar & Wolf Pt through the agency’s Making a Visible Difference in Communities initiative. A focus of this program is achieving environmental outcomes and reducing them through technical support and grant funding. Recent EPA Brownfields funding is offered in partnership with the Great Northern Development Corp. and Tribes’ Brownfields initiative, is removing contaminants & determining revitalization openings at many old buildings in the area. The removal of these scrap vehicles through this additional project will better the goal of making these communities cleaner & safer places to reside. The full story is available here.
