Support for electric vehicles in the northeast continues to grow, and states participating in the Northeast Electric Vehicle Network are forging ahead with preparations for the mass market arrival of plug-in cars and trucks and the economic and environmental benefits that these vehicles can deliver.
Under a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, northeastern states are working with stakeholders to build support for electric vehicles and remove barriers to the widespread deployment of EVs. Most recently, participating states released an electric vehicle support pledge to continue building momentum and to demonstrate broad and deep support for electric vehicles in the region. Collecting pledges will also enable the Transportation and Climate Initiative to highlight the good work that many organizations are already undertaking to promote electric vehicles.
If you haven't already done so, we encourage your company or organization to sign the pledge, which can be downloaded by clicking here or the pdf link below.
Pledges may be returned to Matthew Goetz (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the Georgetown Climate Center, which facilitates the initiative at the direction of participating states. Questions about the pledge may also be directed to Mr. Goetz.
