Transportation Electrification

Did you know that transportation accounts for 84% of our local greenhouse gas emissions? As your local electricity provider, we are dedicated to protect and preserve our pristine Central Coast by improving the quality of our air and our water through local transportation electrification programs. Please see below to learn about our current programs and who is eligible:
MBCP is proud to partner with the California Energy Commission and the Center for Sustainable Energy to offer a total of $7 million in incentives for EV chargers through the California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure – Central Coast Incentive Project where businesses, multi-unit dwellings, nonprofits and local government properties can qualify for rebates to purchase and install EV chargers in Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties. By increasing the number of accessible chargers throughout the region, the Central Coast Incentive Project will help support plug-in electric vehicle growth while reducing air pollution caused by vehicle emissions.
