With the right policies in place, plug-in vehicles can reduce oil dependence in Pennsylvania by 3,729,012 gallons per year, according to a new report released today by PennEnvironment Research & Policy Center.
As Pennsylvanians get ready for summer road trips, a PennEnvironment Research & Policy Center report finds that cleaner, more fuel efficient cars would significantly slash oil consumption and global warming pollution across the state. The report, Summer on the Road: Going Farther on a Gallon of Gas, was released as the Obama administration is on the verge of finalizing fuel efficiency and global warming pollution standards for cars and light trucks that achieve a 54.5 mpg standard by 2025.
Pennsylvania families could save $400 every year on their electricity bills by 2030 if the government invests in the energy efficiency of our buildings today, according to a new report by PennEnvironment. Saving energy in our buildings would also help Pennsylvania’s fight against global warming, reducing global warming pollution from buildings by 27 percent—the equivalent of taking 18 million cars off the road.
As Pennsylvanians embark on one of the busiest travel holidays of the year, and just days after the Obama administration proposed new fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks, a new PennEnvironment report finds that more fuel efficient cars would make significant cuts in oil use and save Pennsylvanians roughly $9.26 million at the gas pump this Thanksgiving alone.
A comprehensive strategy to get off oil can reduce oil dependence in Pennsylvania by 1.8 billion gallons, four times more oil than we could get by expanding offshore drilling throughout the entire Atlantic and Pacific Coasts, according to a new report released today by PennEnvironment.
Pennsylvania families could save $1,668 every year on their energy bills by 2030 if the government invests in the energy efficiency of our buildings today, according to a new report by PennEnvironment.
