Charging With Purpose

Ford launches a zero-carbon electric vehicle home charging initiative in California.

Sustainable Charging

Charging your EV pulls energy from the existing electrical grid. Currently, this may include power from non-renewables such as coal and natural gas. For greater positive environmental impact while charging at home, consider participating in this complimentary program.

How Does It Work?

Plug In and Ford Tracks Your Energy Use

Ford uses your vehicle’s charging data to log the amount of electricity used as your vehicle charges. Equivalent Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) are then purchased to match it with 100% renewable energy. All data is shared with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) in order to generate Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits, which are later sold to regulated entities.

How Does It Work?

Ford Matches with Clean Energy

Ford reinvests all revenue generated from the sale of the LCFS credits to promote an EV future. By doing so, Ford helps to ensure future electric vehicle technology, education, and outreach in California.
