Electric Transportation Benefits Customers, Communities, and the Environment
Electricity is a domestically produced transportation fuel that will transform our nation’s transportation sector. Today, the technology and infrastructure exist to promote transportation applications that move both people and goods using electricity as a fuel. This new generation of electric transportation will help the nation enter an era of clean transportation and reduce its dependence on foreign oil. Diversifying the transportation sector’s fuel mix also will enhance U.S. energy and economic security.
