How EVC's Early Adopters are Paving the Way to Zero Emissions

These business are proving they're built different. Some leaders see a change on the horizon and push their way ahead of it. The reward for the extra hustle? Maximized incentives that will never be seen again, and zero emissions compliance ahead of the curve.

First on our starting line-up is Cal Energy Operating Corporation. Having taken delivery of the SEA Electric 5E EV in June of 2023 with a custom lift-gate allowing this heavy-duty ZEV truck to be their first EV purchase, Cal Energy is phasing in zero emissions for transportation within their own network of locations. They are ready to soon take delivery of the Phoenix Motorcars Zeus 500 to further their efforts in not only providing green energy but implementing sustainability throughout their operations.

Next in the all-star lineup is Advance Plastics, a custom plastic injection molder based in San Diego County, CA. For their customers preferring delivery of products locally, Advance Plastics utilized $129k in HVIP rebates to purchase the SEA Electric 5E in order to deliver products manufactured for their customers like the Spooner Balance Boards, which are unique tools that teach kids to surf.



Last but not least, is it possible to have a "clean" trash business? Absolutely! And Key Disposal has their sights set on a clean, green future as they seek to be the cleanest trash company in town!


This family owned and operated business has been serving our community for the past 60 years with waste collection and recycling. Key Disposal is dedicated to the environment always seeking better ways to Reuse, Reduce and Recycle! So it is absolutely fitting that they were one of EV Choice’s first zero emissions customers getting ahead of the EV game!

"Electric trucks are the way to go for these," says Johnnie, owner of Key Disposal. "This is the first truck I’ve bought that I didn’t have to take back. All I do is park it in the lot and plug it in.”


Key Disposal is dedicated to creating cost effective solutions for recycling, diverting and materials recovery of collections for the goal of protecting the environment. This means that going zero emissions is no question in supporting the company’s vision of being a positive force for the environment in the greater LA community.


Juan, Key Disposal's lead mechanic, was shaking his head in disbelief at first. But after a thorough inspection, circling the vehicle completely, he turned to Johnnie with a grin and declared, "No more oil changes!"


“Diesels, I’m done with them," says Johnnie. "They have done nothing but cost me money.”
