Electric vehicle mobility policy to take effect by month end
Energy Minister Daryl Vaz has announced that the electric vehicle mobility policy will take effect by the end of this month.
He was speaking at the Jamaica Gasolene Retailers Association Road Safety Month launch held at Future Energy Source Company (FESCO) in Kingston, today (June 8).
Mr. Vaz expressed that Jamaica cannot be a “dumping ground” for fossil fuel vehicles, while the rest of the world is advancing.
He said the policy is now in its final stages.
The government says as electric vehicles are believed to be cleaner and safer for the environment than traditional gasolene vehicles, the goal is to have 10 per cent of transportation in the country powered by electricity by 2030.
