ATLANTA (WSAV) — Governor Brian Kemp highlighted the importance of clean energy and the use of electric vehicles today.

EV sales worldwide have gone up by 10% and the governor says it’s important to bring those facilities and plants here.

“The EV makers in GA before the last round of federal incentives and us having a market-based incentive approach where we put our money into creating jobs, infrastructure and having our business environment with low taxes and is more the same with that regard,” Kemp stated.
