Clean Power Alliance Encourages Ventura County Entities to Apply for New CALeVIP Electric Vehicle Charger Purchase Program Beginning August 5

Businesses, Commercial Properties, Multifamily Residences and Local Government Facilities Can Apply for Rebates for Electric Vehicle Charger Purchase and Installation Costs Ranging from $30,000 to $80,000, Benefitting Consumers and Communities Across Southern California

Los Angeles, CA –August 5, 2021– In an ongoing effort to ensure a clean and equitable energy future, Clean Power Alliance (CPA) has partnered with the California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) to help ensure there will always be a place to plug in electric vehicles (EVs) in the Ventura County communities CPA serves. CALeVIP will offer incentives for the purchase and installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at publicly accessible sites throughout California.

Starting today, businesses, commercial properties, multifamily residences, and local government facilities throughout Ventura County can apply for the electric vehicle charger rebates. CALeVIP incentives range from $3,500 to $6,000 per connector for commercial-grade Level 2 EV chargers and $30,000 to $80,000 for high-powered DC fast chargers (DCFC). The higher amounts for both charger types are available for installations in disadvantaged or low-income communities and for Level 2 chargers at multifamily housing in all communities.

This program represents CPA’s commitment to transportation electrification, which provides important short and long-term benefits such as increasing equity of resources in disadvantaged communities and the reduction of both local air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

“Because vehicles are one of the top sources of pollution, transportation electrification is a high priority at CPA,” said Ted Bardacke, Executive Director of CPA. “We look forward the seeing the results of this partnership and have committed additional funding in Los Angeles County as well, so that drivers moving through our entire region can be assured of places to charge their EVs.”

There are numerous benefits to participate in the CALeVIP program. Business-owners can look forward to attracting more customers by offering an incentive to park at their facility and increase customer dwell time by up to 50 minutes.  By investing in EV charging stations, business-owners will increase their property values.  And by expanding the supply of charging stations and increasing the demand for the purchase of electric vehicles, California will meet sustainability goals by contributing to the betterment of the environment and aid in lessening of greenhouse gases.

This launch is part of a statewide effort to provide a streamlined process for getting chargers installed to fill the significant gaps in charging availability, with the goals of supporting local businesses, families, and underserved communities across California. CPA will be expanding this program to LA County in 2022.

“To achieve its ambitious clean transportation goals, California must ensure EV charging stations are installed in all areas of the state,” said Peter Colwell, CSE’s CALeVIP senior program manager. “CALeVIP’s expansion into the South Central Coast will help the area achieve greater consumer EV adoption and reduce transportation emissions.”
