Document Description
The grant recipient will install 15 level 2 Plug-In Electrical Vehicle (PEV) charging stations throughout multiple affordable housing projects in the Bay Area. The installation of new PEV chargers will benefit PEV drivers in the region by increasing their range confidence. The transportation sector is the biggest contributor to California's GHG emissions and accounts for approximately 40 percent of these emissions. As documented throughout numerous California policy and regulatory materials, increased use of zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) provide multiple benefits in addition to reducing GHG emissions, such as reducing conventional pollutants, operating quietly and cleanly, allowing home refueling, lowering operating, and fuel costs. As such, California Governor's Executive Order B-16-2012 orders that the California Air resources Board, the California Energy Commission, the Public Utilities Commission and other relevant agencies work with the Plug-in Electric Vehicle Collaborative and the California Fuel Cell Partnership to achieve, among other benchmarks. By 2015, the State's major metropolitan areas will be able to accommodate ZEVs, each with infrastructure plans and streamlined permitting; and By 2020, the State's infrastructure will be able to support up to one million ZEVs. With the increased range confidence in the region's PEV drivers, there will be an increase in PEV miles driven, displacing conventional gasoline miles driven. By decreasing the conventional gasoline miles driven, GHG emissions will decrease in the region and support the Governor's Executive Order B-16-2012.
