$6 Million For Electric Vehicle Infrastructure In California

EV infrastructure California

California is already an electric vehicle leader, but it is looking to become much more of one. The California Energy Commission (CEC) has put out a $6-million competitive grant solicitation aimed at jacking up EV infrastructure in the Golden State. Green Car Congress has more details:

Destination Charging: This category is for destinations that may attract people to travel “medium-to-long” distances from their home and where the vehicle would tend to be parked for more than one hour. Urban sites that fit into this category include airports, metropolitan centers, and transit areas. Other destinations include lakes, beaches, amusement parks, and other sites that encourage people outside of the surrounding area to visit.

Corridor Charging: Corridor charging gives existing and prospective electric vehicle owners the assurance that they can charge when driving long distances along a freeway or highway. These chargers should also be able to support the needs of local electric vehicle owners. Examples include charging locations that would allow drivers of electric vehicles to more rapidly travel between San Diego and the Los Angeles area, the Los Angeles area and the San Francisco Bay Area, the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento, Sacramento and Fresno, etc.

Workplace Charging: Workplace charging may provide an alternative to residential charging for consumers that may not have residential charging available. Additionally, workplace charging may allow for more vehicle miles to be traveled using electricity. For purpose of this solicitation, workplaces must be located within a 50-mile concentric ring from an urban area.
