Electric Vehicle Roadmap - Goal 4
Incentivize and/or require electric vehicle charging infrastructure in new and existing private multi-family residential and/or non-residential development
Increase electric vehicle (EV) charging station installations in new and existing private development.
Regional research demonstrates a charging infrastructure shortage in both multi-family and non-residential properties. Factors that deter charging station installation include parking space limitations, difficulties in meeting minimum parking requirements when accessible charging infrastructure is installed, and the cost of charging equipment.
The County is evaluating multiple options to encourage and/or require the installation of charging infrastructure in multi-family and commercial properties, including implementing shared parking facilities and evaluating options for Building Code amendments to require new construction and incentivize retrofits to install EV charging infrastructure.
- The County was one of the first jurisdictions in the region recognized by the State as having a streamlined EV charger permitting process consistent with Assembly Bill 1236 (2015). Other jurisdictions recognized in the region include the cities of Escondido, Del Mar, and National City.
- Evaluation of Parking Incentive Program is currently underway as part of the 2018 Climate Action Plan Transportation Demand Management (Measure T-2.2) and Shared Parking (Measure T-2.4) work program.
