BR creates new initiative to reduce carbon emissions

A new initiative from the Baton Rouge Area Foundation and the city-parish is aiming to reduce carbon emissions by urging residents to use electric cars, according to The Greater Baton Rouge Business Report. The initiative includes installing public charging stations for residents’ electric cars.

BRAF and the city-parish plan to install 11 charging stations in downtown Baton Rouge. BRAF and Entergy will fund the chargers.

“It’s really about the environment, and when you look at the future of transportation and where it’s headed, moving away from just relying on gas-fueled vehicles to other options is on the rise,” said Beverly Haydel, BRAF’s director of civic leadership initiatives, according to The Business Report.
