Peninsula Clean Energy and California Energy Commission invest $24 million in EV charger incentive program

Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE), the California Energy Commission (CEC), and the Center for Sustainable Energy will partner to launch an EV charger incentive project in San Mateo County. PCE and CEC will each invest $12 million to install thousands of chargers in San Mateo County over the next four years.

PCE will provide public EV marketing campaigns, test drive events, technical support for school districts switching to electric school buses, and $2 million for outreach and technical assistance for property owners preparing to install EV chargers.

PCE CEO Jan Pepper said, “Expanding EV charging stations in our communities is the logical next step in our efforts to make driving an electric vehicle accessible and affordable.”

Energy Commission Commisioner Patty Monahan said, “By expanding the state’s charging network, CALeVIP projects like this one help the state transition to zero-emission transportation, improve air quality, and reach the state’s climate goals.”
