Innovation in Transportation Electrification
To meet California's goal to reduce greenhouse gases and air pollution, the state will have to significantly increase the electrification of cars, buses, medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks and industrial vehicles and equipment.
Southern California Edison's Pathway 2045 highlights the need for 26 million passenger vehicles, 900,000 medium-duty and 170,000 heavy-duty vehicles on California's roads and in its freight yards by 2045.
SCE's Charge Ready programs address early steps to increase electric vehicle adoption.
Charge Ready Programs
Charge Ready programs support the expansion of EV charging at homes, workplaces, schools and public places, as well as fleet and industrial vehicle charging.
It Pays to Drive Electric!
Take advantage of rebates and incentives to get money back on your electric vehicle (EV) purchase or lease.
The West Coast Clean Transit Corridor Initiative recommends adding EV charging for freight haulers and delivery trucks along Interstate 5 and adjoining highways.
Electrifying cars, trucks and freight equipment will improve air quality and address climate change.
In California, the transportation sector accounts for 41% of the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change and more than 80% of its air pollution.
In Los Angeles County, medium-duty, heavy-duty and non-road vehicles, such as cranes and tractors, contribute substantially to these emissions.
Just the Start
To support California's goal to reduce greenhouse gases and meet its carbon neutrality goals by 2045, 76% of cars will have to be electric.
