CSE is accelerating electric vehicle (EV) adoption through managing the California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP), an initiative to greatly increase EV charging at public locations with funding up to $200 million from the California Energy Commission. The mission is to install sufficient charging infrastructure to support the state’s goal of up to 1.5 million plug-in EVs by 2025.
CALeVIP works with local governments and community partners to develop regional projects to incentivize EV charging at businesses, workplaces, apartment buildings, condominiums and public agencies. The first project launched in Fresno County in December 2017, and additional projects are under development. CSE manages the individual incentive projects and distributes rebates as well as provides outreach materials and online resources to assist property owners, EV charging manufacturers and service providers.
