The plan, to be initiated over the next three to five years, includes giving on smart energy sensors and solar panels to schools and other community-based facilities that need to upgrade to clean tech; wind farms and solar projects; methane capture from from community landfills; and forestry projects throughout America.
Chevy says it will be making investments through third-party organizations such as Portland, OR-based Bonneville Environmental Foundation. It has brought in environmental experts, NGO's and academics through the Climate Neutral Business Network.
The company has launched a Web site, ChevyCarbonReduction.com, to promote. Chevy also is talking about it on ChevyCarbon on Twitter and its Cleaner Energy Facebook tab and its BeyondNow blog.
