Large-scale Medium- and Heavy-Duty vehicle (MHDV) electrification has the potential to put downward pressure on electric utility rates, provide valuable grid services, save money for fleet owners, and reduce pollution and GHG emissions. Preparing our electric grid and building the electrical capacity to power our transportation sector will be one of the largest logistical and public policy challenges over the next decade and one of the most valuable infrastructure investments we’ve made in generations.

Pennsylvania’s Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards (AEPS) require electricity suppliers to include specified percentages of renewable energy and several alternative energy production technologies in their supply mix, creating a market mechanism to increase demand for those energy resources—but the law’s requirements plateaued in 2021.

A new report written by Gabel Associates and released by Advanced Energy United, MAREC Action, and the American Clean Power Association found that more than $13.1 billion could be invested in Pennsylvania over the next seven years and 129,000 jobs could be created if policymakers increase the AEPS to require 30% renewable generation by 2030.
