(Transportation toolkit) Gasoline-powered vehicles are major sources of greenhouse gases (GHGs), smog-forming compounds, particulate matter, and other air pollutants. Widespread use of alternative fuels and advanced vehicles, including plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) can reduce the emissions that impact our air quality and public health. Employers are well-positioned to install non-residential charging where it is needed most, as PEV drivers park their cars at the workplace for 6.5 to 8 or more hours a day.
