San José Clean Energy has partnered with the California Energy Commission’s California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) to offer $14 million in incentive funding to increase electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in our city. Starting December 16, 2020, businesses, commercial property owners, and multifamily residences in San José can apply for significant rebates on eligible Level 2 and DC Fast charging equipment and installation costs.
The project will fund approximately 1,400 Level 2 connectors and 100 DC Fast chargers in San José. At least 25% of incentive funds will be distributed to installations in low-income and disadvantaged communities to further improve access to this infrastructure and move the needle on EV adoption. CALeVIP’s program administrator, Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE), will also provide technical assistance to multifamily residences and properties located in low-income and disadvantaged communities.
Applications open on December 16, 2020. Project funding is expected to be in high demand, so applicants are encouraged to prepare ahead of time and apply quickly. To learn more about the application process, visit the Peninsula-Silicon Valley Incentive Project page.
