Electric vehicle charging stations will pop up at San Diego beaches, parks, libraries and other city-owned parking lots after the council this week passed an agreement that would increase their convoy by hundreds.

“The agreement exemplifies our commitment to advancing our Climate Action Plan and ensuring that electric vehicle charging is accessible and feasible for our residents,” San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria said in a news release on Monday.

The city’s Climate Action Plan, updated in 2022, calls for phasing out 90% of fossil fuel use in buildings by 2035 through electrification, appliance swaps, working with San Diego Community Power to offer 100% renewable electricity for all customers in San Diego by 2030 and planning for and investing in a mobility network that shifts 50% of all trips to walking, biking or transit and reduces the overall need for vehicle use by 2035.
