WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – January 15, 2013 – DataXstream, LLC, a leading SAP® consulting and integration firm, announced the roll-out of an electric car incentive program in an effort to reward employees and embrace the ideals of green technology and energy independence.
In this program, championed by CEO Tim Yates, DataXstream covers the initial fees to lease a new electric vehicle for three years. The company also reimburses the employees for all taxes and fees to register the vehicle, provides a sufficient electronic charging infrastructure at their regional offices and pays for the installation of a Voltec 240V charger at the employee’s home.
“This incentive program allows the company to compensate our employees for their hard work and provides us the opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint,” said Yates. “It is truly a win-win situation.”
The genesis of this incentive program stems from Yates’ own experience with an electric car. In the last 12 months, Yates has driven the company’s 2011 Chevy Volt a total of 5,250 miles. 4,000 of which were electric. In that same span, he only purchased 33 gallons of gas. That is the equivalent of an astonishing 159 miles per gallon.
Embracing green technology is nothing new for DataXstream, as they trumpet the virtues of IT virtualization to all of their clients. In virtualizing an IT infrastructure, companies stand to not only save on hardware and labor costs, they save on energy consumption. According to leading virtualization firm VMware, virtualization of one server saves 7,000 kWh of electricity and four tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
