EDF Applauds Brown Administration’s Effort to Accelerate Electric Vehicle Charging Network throughout California
(San Francisco, CA – April 27, 2012) Today, California took one step closer to achieving the state’s clean air agenda and protecting public health by transmitting for final federal approval a settlement between the Public Utilities Commission and NRG Energy that will fund construction of a statewide network of charging stations for zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs).
“EDF applauds Governor Brown and NRG as they work toward a future of cleaner air and less reliance on imported oil,” said Derek Walker, EDF’s director of strategic climate initiatives. “By creating a backbone of fast chargers throughout the state, this program will accelerate the use of electric vehicles, cut carbon emissions and strengthen our economy at the same time.”
