Aussie state to cut business emissions with electric fleets


The government of the Australian state of Victoria announced a new program on Tuesday to accelerate Victorian vehicles’ transition to zero emissions. All Victorian businesses can now install electric vehicle charging stations, with a share of 1.5 million Australian dollars (1.06m $US) in grants to smooth their transition to a cheaper, cleaner electric vehicle fleet.

The program will also help reduce operating costs and emissions by supporting chargers for business fleets and stimulating the purchase and lease of ZEVs for business operations. It could help businesses save up to 500 Australian dollars (354 $US) per month per car in their fleet. — Xinhua
