Plug-in San Diego


Plug-in San Diego has worked to increase electric vehicle (EV) adoption and deployment of charging infrastructure in San Diego County through a California Energy Commission grant to the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG). While the program has ended, resources it created are available on Plug-in & Get Ready

Through Plug-in San Diego, CSE assisted SANDAG’s member agencies to develop regionally consistent, streamlined processes for permitting and installing residential and commercial electric vehicle charging stations. The project also assisted multifamily housing properties and workplaces with charging equipment siting and worked broadly to increase public awareness of EV benefits through outreach, education and technical assistance.
