Funding for Public Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Currently, EVs make up only 1% of all vehicles in the Monterey Bay Region. In order to meet statewide goals and continue shaping the Central Coast as an innovative leader in sustainability, our region’s EV ownership must grow to 15% by 2030.
Public EV charging stations are critical to reaching this EV adoption goal, which is why MBCP has partnered with the California Energy Commission to offer 7 million dollars in funding for our community.
About the Central California Incentive Project The goal for the Central California Incentive Project (CCIP) is to encourage and accelerate easy access to zero-emission vehicle infrastructure by offering incentives for the purchase and installation of eligible public EV charging stations.
CCIP will provide incentives to qualified sites for the purchase and installation of eligible EV charging infrastructure equipment. The Project benefits the Central Coast region as well as the citizens of California by providing air pollution emission reductions through the provision of adequate infrastructure in the Central Coast region to support plug-in electric vehicle growth through 2025. The Center for Sustainable Energy implements CCIP through a partnership with the California Energy Commission
