Electric Power

Beyond EVs

Electricity is powering electric vehicles but it’s also transforming business operations across a growing number of industries. From airports to seaport loading docks, electrification is happening across the country. It is empowering companies to make significant cost and energy savings, all while decreasing their environmental impact.

As a society, we have just scratched the surface of electricity’s potential as a fuel. The environmental benefits, cost savings and increases in productivity are virtually limitless. Electricity is helping America regain our independence by reducing our reliance on foreign oil.

Driving Electric


Everything you ever wanted to know about driving, owning and charging an EV

Above all else, driving is a visceral experience, and electricity improves everything about it. When you get behind the wheel of an EV for the first time, you sense that something is different. You start the car, yet you don’t hear anything. But it’s when you press the pedal on the right—which, by the way, is called the accelerator or “go pedal”, not the gas—that you really feel the difference.

The Electric Generation, a campaign supported by the Edison Electric Institute, represents the electric utility industry’s commitment to the widespread adoption of electricity as a transportation fuel.

The Electric Generation focuses on the people who support electricity as a fuel: current and future drivers of plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles. With The Electric Generation, the electric utilities are helping to amplify the voices of those who are already passionate and excited about driving electric and spread the message that electricity makes driving better.

The Electric Generation isn’t defined by date of birth, but by state of mind. It’s an all-inclusive community of people of all ages and walks of life who share a common belief that electricity is not only the transportation fuel of the future—it’s the fuel of the present.
