Starting today, 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 through the California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP). CALeVIP is a partnership with the California Energy Commission (CEC) to offer $14 million in incentive funding to increase the number of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in our city. Applications can now be submitted on the CALeVIP website.
The project will fund approximately 1,400 Level 2 connectors and 100 DC Fast chargers in San José, essentially doubling the current public charging infrastructure in our city. 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 ALL San José multifamily residences, as well as workplace, public, and commercial properties located in low-income and disadvantaged communities.
Project funding is expected to be in high demand, so applicants are encouraged to apply quickly. To learn more about the application process, visit the Peninsula-Silicon Valley Incentive Project page.
