VPIRG Signs On to Transportation Electrification Accord

In November 2017, VPIRG signed onto the Transportation Electrification Accord along with a broad array of organizations and businesses committed to an equitable, prosperous and electrified transportation future. Among other principles, the Accord recognizes that electric vehicles (both light duty and heavy duty) can “advance economic development, create jobs, provide grid services, integrate more renewable energy, and cut air pollution and greenhouse gases.”

This follows VPIRG’s work promoting the use of the Volkswagen Settlement fund for electrification, and the announcement of Transportation for Vermonters, a local coalition committed to making Vermont’s transportation system more affordable, accessible, and sustainable.
