Electric Cars Mostly Run On Electricity From Renewable Energy Or Natural Gas

Most of the electric vehicles (EVs) in the US are in California, and California generates essentially no electricity from coal. In fact, California has about 10 times more EVs than the state in second place, which is Georgia. (Note: Georgia is one of the states with quite a bit of dirty coal electricity.) The main source of electricity in California comes from natural gas plants. This fossil fuel is not clean or renewable, but it is cleaner than coal, and using it produces less harmful air pollution . “Reductions in these emissions translate into public health benefits, as these pollutants have been linked with problems such as asthma, bronchitis, lung cancer, and heart disease for hundreds of thousands of Americans.” So, already, we can see most of the EVs in the US are not running on electricity generated by burning coal.
