Electric vehicles (EVs) are spreading fast, and within the next few years there will be millions of them on California’s roads. Many businesses have found that the best way they can support their staff and visitors is to install EV charging. However, most workplaces do not yet have charging available, due to perceived barriers such as the cost of purchasing and installing them.
The good news is that millions of dollars are available right now to help businesses install EV charging. Your place of work can receive assistance for purchasing the equipment, installing the equipment, and even for the electrical upgrades that may be necessary. This webinar will explain the multiple sources of grant funding available right now, and give you the opportunity to hear directly from the people administering those programs. You will also have the opportunity to hear from a local business that has “been there, done that,” and will explain the process of accessing grant funds from the user side, and also illuminate the many benefits EV charging have provided their business.
Presenters will include:
Jaime Collard, EV Specialist in PG&E’s Electric Vehicle Charge Network Program
Mark Tang, from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District
Tina Montgomery, from SOMO Village in Rohnert Park and the first One Planet Community in North America
The Center for Climate Protection and our partners at Sonoma County Transportation Authority/Regional Climate Protection Authority are presenting this webinar as part of an effort to accelerate workplace charging in Sonoma County through a grant awarded by the California Energy Commission
