U.S. San Francisco mayor announces new programs to reduce carbon emissions


SAN FRANCISCO, April 7 (Xinhua) -- U.S. San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Thursday announced an array of new programs that will reduce carbon emissions and promote equitable access to clean energy in the city, two priorities highlighted in San Francisco's recently updated Climate Action Plan.

The initiatives, which are being managed by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), include discounts for 100 percent renewable energy for low-income customers, rebates to replace fossil-fuel-powered appliances, and incentives for installing electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Together, the programs will help the city make further progress in reaching climate action goals, including achieving net-zero emissions by 2040.
