The Future is Electric

Transportation is responsible for nearly 40 percent of carbon emissions in Summit County. This means our community can’t achieve the goals of our Climate Action Plan without significantly reducing carbon pollution from the cars and trucks we all drive. In fact, over 75 percent of local transportation emissions come from passenger cars, pickup trucks, and vans. That’s why one of the most important strategies we have for reducing transportation emissions is a widespread adoption of electric vehicles.

Getting EV Ready

In 2021, Breckenridge, Frisco, and Summit County Government adopted an electric vehicle (EV) readiness plan with strategies designed to make driving and riding in an EV easier and more affordable.

Colorado's EV Goals

Colorado has its own EV goals, too. Will you be one of the 940,000 EV drivers the state hopes to see by 2030? Check out Colorado's EV plan to learn how the state is encouraging EV adoption.
