SDG&E Clean Transportation Initiatives
Why we're involved in transportation electrification
Our company’s mission is to become the cleanest, safest, and most reliable energy infrastructure company in America. A big part of ensuring we meet the clean part of our mission is facilitating the transition to zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) and equipment.
At both the regional and state level, the transportation sector is the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions – a key driver behind climate change and a major source of air pollution. To address this, California has set a goal of having five million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2030 and to phase out the sales of new gas-powered cars by 2035.
To enable this transition, we have been working to aggressively expand the charging infrastructure in our region to support cars, buses, trucks, shuttles and more, while also simultaneously upgrading our own company fleet to drive down emissions.
Our company fleet goals are to:
- Electrify 100% of our light-duty fleet and transition 30% of our overall fleet to zero-emission vehicles by 2030
- Operate a 100% zero-emission fleet by 2040
