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 charging stations at County facilities and in public locations in the unincorporated area.

To increase installation at County facilities, the EV Roadmap identified a policy 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. By 2022, the County will complete an EV charger site assessment to identify locations of high priority for charger installation.

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