SLO County EV & Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Programs

Information updated July 2, 2021.

CALeVIP South Central Coast Incentive Project Electric Vehicle Charger Program - Starting August 5, 2021

The California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) South Central Coast Incentive Project, offering incentives for the purchase and installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at publicly accessible sites, will be available in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties August 5, 2021. CALeVIP addresses regional needs for EV charging infrastructure throughout California, while supporting state goals to improve air quality, combat climate change and reduce petroleum use.

The program will be implemented by the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) and will provide up to $6,000 per connector for level 2 chargers and up to $80,000 per DC fast charger. For more information, or to apply for a grant, see the CALeVIP South Central Coast Incentive Project web site.

Funding is expected to go quickly. 

Funded jointly by the CEC and local agencies such as SLO County APCD, 3C Energy and SLOCOG, and implemented by CSE, CALeVIP will provide $2.3 million in incentives to develop projects that meet current and future regional EV needs for Level 2 and DC fast charging in SLO County. The statewide efforts aim to provide a streamlined process for getting chargers installed to fill significant gaps in charging availability.

Community Air Protection Program (AB617)

The APCD Board has authorized additional grant funding from California Assembly Bill 617 - Community Air Grants Program. AB 617 seeks to ensure that all Californians benefit equitably from our State's air quality and climate efforts, especially those who live in the areas of California most severely impacted by air pollution. 

Eligible projects for this funding, which will focus on under-served areas in our county, will be administered using the Carl Moyer grant program guidelines and include, but are not limited to the replacement of diesel equipment, including heavy-duty on-road vehicles (transit, waste haulers, and heavy-duty trucks), agricultural tractors and irrigation engines, construction equipment and transit and school buses.
