Drive Green

In New Jersey, transportation is the number one source of greenhouse gas pollution. Emissions from cars and trucks also account for about 30% of the total hydrocarbon and oxides of nitrogen emissions in the air that contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone or “smog” during the summer months. Your choice to drive electric improves New Jersey’s air quality and helps slow climate change.

Best Management Practices to Ensure Your Town is EV-Ready

As part of its commitment to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transportation sector (42% of the State’s net GHG emissions), New Jersey is implementing a suite of strategies in a concerted effort to increase the number of light-duty electric vehicles on the road and to ensure sufficient public EV charging infrastructure. Municipalities are at the core of this activity.
