California’s Electric Car Law Binge Promotes Market

California passes six new laws to support electric and low-carbon car drivers and boost the electric vehicle market, making the state the definitive front-runner in this “clean” sector. Six laws and a dozen other regulations have been passed recently, representing a more than $2 billion financial commitment to clean transportation — more than any other state to date.

The new laws and regulations address various issues from extending existing sticker programs that allow vehicles meeting certain low-emission standards to guaranteeing access to carpool lanes to making it easier for drivers to use charging stations.

California’s efforts to lead a surge in the number of electric vehicles on the road also include an executive order that sets a target of 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles in the state by 2025, in comparison to the 28 million cars and trucks already licensed to use the roads in the state. The wider adoption of electric vehicles has been severely sidetracked by several road blocks, including high sticker prices, expensive batteries, and a limited number of charging stations.

The new regulations minimize these costs, among other things, by extending the validation of carpool lane stickers validation to 2019. At the same time, the state is laying the groundwork to include charging platforms in the parking areas of apartment houses and commercial buildings.
