Under the Hood: Northern Light Pharmacy goes electric with new fleet of delivery vehicles
Northern Light Pharmacy recently introduced four new electric Chevy Bolt EUVs to its delivery fleet. The swap to the zero emission, more efficient vehicles was made in part to align with Northern Light Health’s Climate Health initiative, which aims to increase our contributions towards a healthier planet by implementing sustainable practices. The vehicles are located in Bangor, Waterville, and soon Portland. Brian Raymond, retail business manager, Northern Light Pharmacy shared, the leases on our former vehicles were coming to an end, and we were exploring ways to be a part of the solution to reduce the harmful effects on the Earth. These vehicles not only provided a wonderful and sustainable opportunity they also provide us with cost savings during the trade in. He adds, “According to the US Department of Energy, an electric car produces 1.2 metric tons of carbon emissions per year, while a gas car will produce 6.2 metric tons of carbon emissions? so it’s a significant savings”.
