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.
