We support the rapid decarbonization of transportation systems because the transportation sector is now the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. To meet this goal, we launched Electrify The South, a program to educate and empower individuals, communities, municipalities, policymakers, and utilities to transition to clean, electric transportation throughout the Southeast. Electrifying our transportation sector with renewable energy and increasing vehicle efficiency will help accomplish our goal while bolstering our economy, saving consumers money, and reducing our dependence on oil and the threats from offshore drilling.
As electric vehicles increasingly displace gas and diesel vehicles, the energy that fuels transportation shifts from petroleum to electricity. North Carolina utilities have accelerated transportation electrification investments to spur EV market growth.
No to offshore drilling and yes to clean energy and electric transportation!
In approving Duke Energy Florida’s rate settlement, the Florida Public Service Commission gives the green light to the largest electric transportation program in the state’s history.
