WASHINGTON (August 5, 2021) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn today issued the following statement:
“EEI and our member companies—America’s investor-owned electric companies—commend the Biden administration for proposing new rules to help reduce emissions from passenger and other light-duty vehicles.
"EEI and our member companies are leading a clean energy transformation across the nation, and electrifying the transportation sector will be critical to delivering a carbon-free future to the customers and communities that we serve.

"The transportation sector currently represents the largest source of carbon emissions in the U.S. economy, and we are committed to working with President Biden and other leaders across the administration to help build the electric vehicle charging infrastructure we need to accelerate the electrification of the transportation sector and reduce vehicle emissions.”
