California approved a plan on Dec.14th for nearly $3 billion in funding for 90,000 new electric vehicle chargers in the state, which is a 30x increase in funding from 2019 levels.
The funding will double the state’s charging network from 80,000 publicly available chargers to 170,000, keeping the state on track to achieve its goal of 250,000 chargers installed by 2025.
The funds support the deployment of thousands of zero-emission trucks, school buses, and transit buses to deliver clean air benefits and good-paying jobs to neighborhoods across the state, especially to communities hit hardest by the impacts of pollution from trucks and buses. At least half of the funding will benefit low-income and historically disadvantaged communities on the front lines of the climate crisis.
California surpassed one million ZEV sales in 2021 and led the country in all ZEV market metrics including the highest level of public funding, the largest EV market share percentage of nearly 18%, and the most extensive public charging infrastructure. The success of the state’s programs has led to ZEVs becoming a top export and has spurred significant advances in manufacturing and job creation.
