Innovation in Electric Transportation

At Edison International we believe that electrifying transportation is the best way to fight climate change and help reduce air pollution.  That is why we’ve been at the forefront of supporting the development and adoption of electric transportation technology advances for many years.

Meeting California’s ambitious carbon reduction objectives will require a broad set of actions across every part of our economy. Our utility, Southern California Edison, is the state’s only all-electric investor-owned utility, and is therefore uniquely positioned to recommend carbon-friendly transportation initiatives that will reduce the use of fossil fuels including gasoline, diesel fuel and natural gas.
