California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project


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. Through 2019, six regional CALeVIP incentive projects have been launched, with three additional regional projects to launch in 2020.
