Cars and trucks are the biggest source of global warming pollution in Maine. NRCM works for laws, incentives, and information that helps Mainers to buy the cleanest cars that meet their needs.
Many people are surprised to learn that cars and trucks are the single biggest source of global warming pollution. Hybrid cars are now commonplace and many models of electric-fueled “plug-in” cars are now practical and available in Maine, and increasingly popular. When powered by clean, renewable power sources, electric cars can become a zero-emission alternative to our biggest source of pollution.
Electric cars are fun to drive, cheaper to fuel, and better for Maine’s environment, economy, and oil independence
For the health of Maine people and our environment, NRCM continues to lead efforts to make cleaner, and more fuel-efficient vehicles available. Cleaner cars mean cleaner air, and that means a healthier future for all of us.
