DID YOU KNOW
About 44% of New Jersey’s electricity is generated by Nuclear Power Plants, compared to the national average of 19%. This type of electricity-generating plant does not emit Greenhouse Gases OR criteria pollutants (ozone, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter, and lead), which means that nearly half of our energy is clean and CARBON FREE! We also use coal for only about 2% of our energy, compared to the national average of 33%! This makes the New Jersey electricity grid very clean and well-suited for charging electric vehicles. Because our grid is so clean, charging an electric vehicle in New Jersey produces significantly less harmful emissions than charging in other areas of the country AND emits less harmful emissions than driving an internal combustion engine vehicle.
