According to our friends at Renewable Energy Magazine, “Mayor Bill de Blasio, the Mayor New York City, has announced the launch of the NYC Clean Fleet – a comprehensive plan to create the largest electric vehicle (EV) fleet of any US city.
The Clean Fleet plan will cut municipal vehicle emissions in half by 2025 – and 80 percent by 2035 – and serve as a model for the private sector and other 21st century cities in fighting climate change.
The project is the latest in a series of ambitious but necessary climate initiatives outlined in the Mayor’s OneNYC plan which sets a long-term goal of reducing all greenhouse gas emissions across New York City by 80 percent by 2050. Currently, the transport sector accounts for nearly one-quarter of citywide greenhouse gas emissions.”
