USA: New Report Shows Electric Vehicles Ready to Roll in Pennsylvania

Philadelphia, PA—With the right policies in place, plug-in vehicles can reduce oil dependence in Pennsylvania by 3,729,012 gallons per year, according to a new report released today by PennEnvironment Research & Policy Center.

“It’s time to plug in, power up, and protect our planet because plug-in vehicles have arrived here in Pennsylvania,” said Adam Garber, Field Director at PennEnvironment Research & Policy Center.

According to the PennEnvironment Research & Policy Center report, Charging Forward: The Emergence of Electric Vehicles and Their Role in Reducing Oil Consumption, Pennsylvania drivers will purchase, 15,886 plug-in vehicles by 2015..Overall, these vehicles will reduce Pennsylvania’s global warming pollution by 19,584 metric tons per year. If the plug-in vehicles are powered by clean sources of electricity, these savings will rise to 66,553 metric tons per year.

“For decades, owning a car has meant consuming oil. Today, drivers finally have a choice,” continued Garber. “Thanks in part to smart policies in Pennsylvania and from the Obama administration, every major automobile manufacturer is offering a new plug-in vehicle powered primarily by electricity. For the first time, we can power our cars with clean energy.”

In Washington, President Obama has proposed fuel efficiency standards that PennEnvironment credits as being the most important step ever taken to build clean, advanced technology cars that will get us off oil. His administration has also made investments in critical technologies, such as advanced batteries and high powered charging stations.

“The future of transportation is electric cars,” said Norm Zarwin of U-Go Stations, a company that installs electric vehicle charging stations. “U-Go seeks to fuel the alternate energy revolution by providing readily available charging stations throughout the city of Philadelphia, across the country, and internationally, making owning an electric vehicle feasible for Pennsylvania residents”
