Statement: Nearly $20 Million for EV charging in Georgia

 “Building a statewide and national network of EV charging stations is just what Georgia needs to make the  transition to electric vehicles.

This step toward an all-electric, zero-emission future is essential to ensure cleaner air for all.”
