Rhode Island and seven other states have released their action plan for their collective pledge to put 3.3 million zero-emission cars on the road by 2025. It's an effort to reduce greenhouse gas pollution from the transportation sector.
Energy Commissioner Marion Gold of the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources says this commitment is in line with the state's goal to curb greenhouse gas emissions. She says the state's energy plan, and the governor's executive council on climate change underscore the goal's importance.
