CALeVIP Electric Vehicle Charger Program - Starting July 2021
The California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) offers incentives for the purchase and installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at publicly accessible sites throughout California. CALeVIP addresses regional needs for EV charging infrastructure, while supporting state goals to improve air quality, combat climate change and reduce petroleum use.
The program will be coming to San Luis Obispo County in July 2021, with an informational webinar planned for some time in May. APCD will provide further details as they become available.
Funded jointly by the California Energy Commission and local agencies such as SLO County APCD, 3C Energy and SLOCOG, and implemented by the Center for Sustainable Energy, CALeVIP provides incentives to develop and implement projects that meet current and future regional EV needs for Level 2 and DC fast charging. The statewide efforts aim to provide a streamlined process for getting chargers installed to fill the significant gaps in charging availability.
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.
