Electric Vehicle Roadmap - Goal 2

Accelerate the installation of electric vehicle charging stations at public locations in County facilities and in the unincorporated county


Targeted Outcome

Contribute to the regional electric vehicle (EV) charging network by installing 2,040 Level II charging stations at County facilities and throughout the unincorporated area by 2028.

Overview

EV charger

The County expands the regional EV charging network by installing charging infrastructure at public locations in County facilities and in the unincorporated county. By 2028, the County plans to install 2,040 Level II or equivalent charging stations at County facilities and in public locations in the unincorporated area. The County is completing an EV charger site assessment to identify locations of high priority for charger installation to increase access to EV chargers and build a complete EV infrastructure network connecting our entire region.

To increase installation at County facilities, the EV Roadmap identified an amendment to Board Policy G-15 to require charging infrastructure for employee and public use in all new County facilities.

The County coordinates with regional partners to evaluate EV charging infrastructure gaps and identify opportunities for funding in the region.

The County conducts community engagement, particularly in communities of concern, to garner public input on potential site locations.

Clean Mobility Options Voucher Pilot Program

The County was awarded grand funding to conduct a needs assessment to understand how residents in La Presa travel within their community, and what transportation challenges they face when doing so. The County worked in partnership with residents to identify clean transportation options for the community. Learn more about the La Presa community transportation needs assessment.
