California Earmarks $5 Million For Install Of 475 Charging Stations
The California Energy Commission (CEC) approved substantial funding for the install of public charging stations:
“To continue building the infrastructure needed to charge California’s growing number of electric vehicles, the Energy Commission approved 15 grants totaling more than $5 million to install 475 electric vehicle chargers in communities throughout California, including the cities of San Francisco, Burbank, Torrance and San Diego and the counties of Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Orange, Riverside and Los Angeles. These grants are funded by the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP).”
CEC Commissioner Janea A. Scott, adds:
“The Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program continues to support California’s goal of 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025. These community investments assist in building the network of charging stations needed, and help accelerate growth in the electric vehicle market.”
More public chargers, to the tune of 475, coming soon to select cities in California. That’s the summary of what was announced yesterday by the CEC.
