Why plan for the deployment of PEVs in the San Joaquin Valley?

The San Joaquin Valley has significant challenges related to air quality because of its unique geography, emissions from both northern and southern California and air pollution from regional population growth. Transportation continues to be the largest contributor to air pollution with nearly 60% of smog-forming oxides of nitrogen (NOX) directly attributable to cars and trucks. As a result of progressive leadership by the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control district, regionwide emission levels have dropped significantly since 1990. However, greater emission reductions in the transportation sector are essential in order for this trend to continue with the increased deployment of PEVs as a key strategy to achieving reduced emissions and improved air quality.

What is the SJV PEVCC?

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District received two grants, from the California Energy Commission and the Department of Energy, to increase zero-emission and clean vehicle awareness and deployment. The grants led to the formation of the San Joaquin Valley Plug-in Electric Vehicle Coordinating Council (SJV PEVCC) and support strategic planning for PEVs and charging infrastructure, also known as electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). The SJV PEVCC is composed of representatives from local governments, public agencies, utilities, local universities and community colleges, industry and the nonprofit sector.

What is the purpose of SJV PEVCC?

The primary focus of the SJV PEVCC 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 region. It is developing best practices and educational materials that address updating zoning and parking policies, streamlining permitting and inspection processes and updating building codes for EVSE and PEV parking as well as EVSE installation procedures for local residents and businesses and charging at multiunit dwellings and workplaces.

The San Joaquin Valley PEV Readiness Plan Workshop was held on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at the SJVAPCD Fresno Office, 1990 E. Gettysburg Ave., Fresno, CA. (map) No future PEVCC meetings have been scheduled.

Teleconference and video teleconferencing (Modesto and Bakersfield offices) will also be available.
