Electric Vehicle Roadmap - Goal 6

Collaborate with regional partners to support public and private fleet electrification


Targeted Outcome

Increase electric vehicle (EV) use in regional light-, medium-, and heavy-duty fleets.

Overview

Electric vehicle fleet

The County collaborates with State and local agencies, private businesses, and other regional partners to advocate for the electrification of light-, medium-, and heavy-duty fleets within the region. In addition, the County coordinates with a regional working group, the  Accelerate to Zero Emissions Partnership, to:

  • Monitor existing pilot programs and identify future programs to electrify regional fleets.
  • Evaluate fleet opportunities within the unincorporated county and conduct targeted outreach in collaboration with regional partners.
  • Evaluate charging infrastructure placement to ensure grid stability and resiliency.
  • Identify gaps in EV adoption and consider ride share EV fleets to make this technology more accessible, especially to priority populations in the region.
  • Promote clean transportation innovations to demonstrate leadership and attract investment in future charging and vehicle technologies.

2019-2020 Accomplishments

  • The County continued collaboration with SANDAG, SDG&E, San Diego County Air Pollution Control District, and the City of San Diego on the Accelerate to Zero Emissions Partnership, and developed a framework to expand the partnership to include additional agency support, industry experts, and other interested stakeholders.
