Governor's office recent release:
Last month, we announced that Delaware will join 13 other states in adopting California’s Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) regulations, providing drivers seeking to buy an electric vehicle with more choices at Delaware dealerships. By adopting the ZEV regulations, Delaware drivers won’t have to go out of state to find an electric vehicle to purchase, and our dealerships will benefit by keeping in-state customers in Delaware.
In 2021, we increased our Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard, requiring Delaware’s utilities to get a portion of their energy from renewables, including wind and solar. The goal is to achieve 40% renewable energy sources by 2035.
Also in 2021, we announced that we are expanding our electric vehicle fast-charging network using money from Delaware’s share of the Environmental Mitigation Trust funding grants. This investment – and other steps we take as a state – will address air pollution and protect the 75,000 adults and 15,000 children living with asthma in Delaware. President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will significantly build on state-level efforts.
