California Approves Additional $1 Million In Funding For Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Cause every little bit helps out, right?:
Electric vehicle charging stations
California has a goal to get 1.5 zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) on the road by 2025. Energy Commission’s Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP) has already allocated nearly $400 million to help bolster statewide ZEV infrastructure and create a viable market for these vehicles. Today, the commission approved $1 million in ARFVTP funding to install electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Encinitas and Sonoma County. Corridor Power, Inc was awarded nearly $500,000 to install 10 electric vehicle fast chargers in Encinitas and the County of Sonoma was awarded $500,000 to renovate 10 existing electric vehicle chargers and install three new electric vehicle chargers.
Some say $1 million is equivalent to a rounding error, which may sort of be true, but California has had a lot of these rounding errors, resulting in charging stations being installed. We’ll take these rounding errors one by one. The job is still getting done.
