Statement from Plug In America’s Joel Levin on California’s Climate Investment Plan
“Electric car drivers applaud Governor Brown’s announcement targeting millions of zero-emission vehicles and infrastructure by 2030. These smart, stable and strong policies, coupled with targeted investments, ensure that California solidifies its climate action leadership. We encourage other states to follow suit, as California demonstrates economic growth, clean air, and jobs all go hand-in-hand. Electric cars are a key part of this puzzle, and because of California’s leadership, the transition to a clean energy future will move faster,” said Joel Levin, Executive Director, Plug In America.
