Electric vehicles

We’re on the road to an electric future — and you can help drive us there.

It’s a hard truth: We simply can’t solve global warming without changing how we all get around. Transportation is now America’s No. 1 source of global warming pollution, and cars account for 60% of our transportation pollution.

The good news is that we have never been closer to an electric vehicle future than we are right now — a future where our kids ride electric buses to school, our mail and packages arrive in electric trucks, and every new car that is sold gets plugged in at night. Together, we can protect our climate by accelerating the transition to an electric vehicle future.

New report outlines how electric school buses could speed New Jersey’s transition to clean electric grid

Most of the nation’s nearly half a million school buses run on diesel fuel, producing harmful emissions that children are forced to breathe. With the support of the World Resources Institute’s Electric School Bus Initiative, Environment New Jersey Research & Policy Center and Frontier Group are releasing a new report examining how the transition to electric school buses, in addition to keeping diesel exhaust out of developing lungs, could help speed up the expansion of clean energy by providing a critical source of reliable battery storage.

Pallone recently announced that New Jersey will receive $15,448,790 to build out the state’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure, paving the way for a more robust and convenient network of chargers across New Jersey.

Charge Local: How We Can Get More EVs on the Road

Electric vehicles are the future, and New Jerseyans are already moving in large numbers towards electric vehicles. Now, we need to build charging stations to support these vehicles. We released a guide to help support municipalities in the effort to build charging stations, which you can read more about in this blog post.
