“Today’s announcement on EV charging from the White House is a bell-ringing moment for an electric future and clean air,” said Adrian Martinez, deputy managing attorney on Earthjustice’s Right to Zero campaign. “These massive investments in electric vehicle charging and American clean energy jobs will deliver cleaner air in our neighborhoods and protect our climate. We’re especially heartened to see billions in investments being laid out to charge electric heavy duty vehicles, which will help lift the burden of diesel tailpipe pollution for communities living in the shadow of large ports and major trucking corridors.”
