The Municipality of Lucca has been admitted to the funding of the regional tender relating to electric mobility. Two in particular the projects presented by the Administration included in the 2011 PAC and aimed at improving air quality which are fully financed with regional resources, without the need for municipal co-financing.
The second project admitted to regional funding concerns the construction of a car-sharing system consisting of 6 electric vehicles and an electrical infrastructure with 3 charging stations serving the entities: Municipality of Lucca, Capannori, Porcari, Arpat Department of Lucca, Province of Lucca and Health Authority 2. The project is aimed at the construction of electrical infrastructures and a fleet of electric vehicles to be used as forms of car-sharing between the entities involved. In this way it will be possible to replace an equal number of combustion vehicles to the advantage of air protection.
Considering an average mileage of 7800 km per year of the entities involved, it is calculated to avoid 0.6 kg of PM10 emissions per year if 10 petrol cars are replaced. The reduction of PM10 emissions goes to 3.3 kg per year if Euro 0 vehicles are replaced.
The integration with the In-Presa service developed for the adjacent Solar Bike Station project allows the use and management of dedicated charging systems also for vehicles reserved for the Car Sharing project.
