In efforts to create cleaner air for the Charlotte region, the city is working to have 100% of its vehicle fleet and facilities fueled by zero-carbon sources by 2030.
Charlotte City Council approved a pilot program between Charlotte Area Transit System and eTransenergy back in 2018. They're hoping this program will help them meet their goal to make Charlotte a low-carbon city by 2050.
City leaders say as they continue to test newer technology to ensure it meets service delivery needs, one of the biggest factors in helping them reach their goal is community and individual efforts.
"We haven’t been doing the work for decades, so there is a lot to do in a short period of time," Eric Zaverl, with Sustain Charlotte, said.
