Forth is partnering with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Wash., to evaluate the affordability and environmental gains of a sustainable, rural-focused, ridesharing platform.
OpConnect is providing the EV charging infrastructure for the program. Envoy Technologies provides the carsharing platform. Pacific Power is providing technical support as well as $100,000 in funding for the project through the Oregon Clean Fuels Program.
This project is made possible with contributions, collaboration and input of many local organizations including Columbia Area Transit, Columbia Cascade Housing Corporation, Pacific Power, the Hood River County Energy Council, local governments, and Mid-Columbia Economic Development District staff.
