We strive to protect the environment by minimizing our impact, improving the sustainability of our operations, executing our Climate Strategy and finding opportunities to enhance the ecosystems we interact with.
We're proud to be recognized as a fully accredited Right-of-Way (ROW) Steward through the ROW Stewardship Council, a designation honoring our dedication to responsible and sustainable practices in vegetation management.
We believe the utility industry is uniquely positioned to create and support habitats where declining pollinator populations can thrive. We've set a goal to create 225 acres of biodiverse pollinator habitats by 2025 by planting seed mix in our transmission rights-of-way.
Our long-term vision is to help lead a seamless and reliable economy-wide electrification effort and power a more sustainable future for the customers and communities we serve. To advance that vision, we're making electric vehicle adoption more accessible, convenient, and affordable through our EV Driven programs in Maryland and New Jersey.
We are responsible stewards of the natural resources impacted by our operations and are committed to fulfilling this responsibility for current and future generations by conducting our operations according to the principles in our policy.
In 2022, our energy efficiency programs helped save over 580,000 MWh of electricity. Continuing these efforts, our goal is to help customers reduce their cumulative electricity usage by more than 7.5 million MWh between 2021-2025.
We're targeting 30% electrification of our light-duty and aerial truck fleet by 2030, and full electrification by 2050. Since 2021, we've been striving for 100% electric or hybrid purchases for this fleet.
Since 2020, our Wood Pole Diversion Program helped us save 2,287 tons of wood poles from landfills. This and other company recycling programs help us minimize waste and mitigate our impact on the environment.
