What is REVI?
The San Diego region is at the forefront of plug-in electric vehicle ( PEV) deployment with the highest per capita amount of PEV purchases and car charging equipment installations in the United States. The region’s early PEV experiences have identified barriers to widespread PEV adoption, which could best be addressed in a strategic and coordinated manner. REVI is comprised of members from local jurisdictions, regional public agencies, the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), the California Center for Sustainable Energy ( CCSE), San Diego Gas & Electric, local universities and community colleges, IBEW Local 569, the National Electrical Contractors Association and members of the business community.
What is the Purpose of REVI?
The primary focus of the San Diego REVI is to develop a regional PEV readiness plan that identifies, reduces and resolves barriers to the widespread deployment of private and public PEV charging stations in the San Diego region. San Diego REVI plans to leverage previous PEV readiness efforts in the region. Two grants, from the California Energy Commission and the U.S. Department of Energy, support the formation of the San Diego REVI and strategic planning for PEVs in the San Diego Region. SANDAG and CCSE will be administering these PEV planning grants. The REVI meetings are open to the public and are held monthly. The final San Diego regional PEV readiness plan will be completed and published in late 2013.
The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 16, 2013 from 1:00pm to 2:30pm at the Energy Innovation Center located at 4760 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego, CA 92117 (map)
