Electrify Your Ride VA
Making electric cars more accessible than ever
In Virginia, nearly half of all energy-related CO2 emissions come from the transportation sector.1 By switching from a gas-powered car to an electric one, the average VA resident could reduce the CO2 emissions of their drive by 70%.2 The collective impact of individuals making this switch would significantly impact both our carbon emissions and our regional transition to clean energy.
A collaboration between the nonprofits Generation180, Green Energy Consumer Alliance, and Virginia Clean Cities, the Electrify Your Ride VA campaign is a new, statewide program aimed at making electric cars more accessible than ever through education, local events, and dealership discounts.
