Clean Air

Clean air is important to Utahns, and Aaron is leading by example

Utah is poised to be a leader in the transition to Electric Vehicles (EVs), which is great. We need to continue to build out the charging infrastructure and incentivize people to make the switch. Aaron has been driving an all-electric Nissan LEAF since 2016.

Notice that the percentage of emissions from homes and businesses is expected to double by 2050, so we’ll need to focus our efforts here too. Have you ever considered that most homes have little fires burning inside all the time? Instead of burning gas and coal to power our homes, we need to transition to solar. That is why Aaron worked so hard on HB411, and will continue to support solar energy solutions.

Aaron is committed to continually increasing his network and research

Pictured with SLC Sustainability Director Vicki Bennett during the rollout of the Utah Roadmap at the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute Breakfast, Aaron is well-connected with leaders in the field.

As a member of the Utah Climate Action Network, Aaron connected Sandy City’s CAO with Rocky Mountain Power to acquire a $308,000 grant to build 45 EV charging stations.
