Electric Cars Can Help Global Warming

Increasing the use of electric and plug-in hybrid in Pennsylvania and nationwide would reduce emissions that global warming and air pollution, all curbing our dependence on oil, to a new white paper released by PennEnvironment.

A “plug-in” car is one that can be from the electric grid. plug-in cars run on electricity while others are paired small gasoline engines to plug-in hybrids (which are than the Toyota Prius and conventional hybrids common

Many plug-in hybrids can get 100 miles per gallon, while electric vehicles consume no at all.  Plug-in vehicles no direct tailpipe pollution operating on electricity, and as renewable sources like wind and meet a larger share of our needs, electric cars create little or no air pollution.  The needed to build workable vehicles exists today, and have several advantages gasoline-powered cars including far required regular maintenance and no oil

“Electric cars could be a in the effort to wean our country off of oil and global warming,” said Willcox, PennEnvironment’s Energy Air Advocate.  “Now, with the industry in transition, we must this once-in-a-generation opportunity to plug-in cars into the lane.”

PennEnvironment was joined by Mayor Michael Nutter, City Councilwoman Blondell Brown, and Axion Power Inc. in releasing today’s paper.

The new PennEnvironment white entitled Plug-in Cars: America Toward a Cleaner answers many questions plug-in vehicles and lays out a for how to increase the number of electric on the road. Key points of the paper

If half of the light vehicles in the States were electric powered by completely clean in 2030, total fleet of global warming pollution be reduced by 62 percent.

Powering a car on would result in 93 percent smog-forming volatile organic and 31 percent less nitrogen emissions than powering a car on

If three-fourths of American cars, trucks, SUVs and vans electric, oil use would be reduced by one-third.

Operating costs of plug-in are likely to be significantly lower those of gasoline-powered cars. costs three to five per mile with average rates, or the equivalent of $0.75 to per gallon of gasoline.

Utilities can electricity prices so that it is to charge cars at times of the day there is lower electric ensuring that a large of plug-in cars do not put a strain on the

Unlocking the full environmental and potential of plug-in vehicles require efforts to clean up and America’s electric grid. and the country as a whole should renewable energy standards that at least 25 percent of our come from renewable by 2025.

PennEnvironment urged state and officials to fully harness the of plug-ins by setting clean car offering financial incentives for of plug-in vehicles, creating a fuel standard that plug-ins to contribute to lowering warming emissions, promoting energy and adopting ‘smart technologies that would plug-ins to help stabilize the grid.  The group also for a comprehensive federal energy and bill to help drive for plug-in cars.
