As part of National Drive Electric Week 2020, Southern Company revealed its inner fleet electrification goal. The business intends to transform half of its electrical business’ fleet automobiles in the auto/SUV/minivan, forklift, and ATV/cart/miscellaneous equipment segment to electric by 2030.
National Drive Electric Week is held between Sept. 26-Oct. 4. It is celebrated to increase understanding of all-electric and plug-in crossbreed, vehicles, and bikes across the world. They are much better for the environment, have a reduced overall operational expense than gas or diesel cars, help advertise local jobs, fun to drive and decrease our self-reliance on international oil.
The internal fleet goal launched by Southern Company belongs to a more significant focus on the electrification of the transport market and dedication to clean energy and sustainability.
By combining our affordable electricity rates with our electric transportation programs, we help communities and businesses reduce their cost and environmental impact. Customers save on fueling their transportation needs, while commercial businesses increase efficiency by using electricity to transport their goods. – said Lincoln Wood, Electrification Policy Manager at Southern Company
Lincoln Wood further claimed that transforming to electric is a win-win for drivers and organizations. In May, Southern Company introduced an objective of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
