Lena A. Gonzalez
- District 33
Existing law requires the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission (Energy Commission) , working with the State Air Resources Board and the Public Utilities Commission, to prepare, and update biennially, a statewide assessment of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure needed to support the levels of electric vehicle adoption required for the state to meet its goals of putting at least 5,000,000 zero-emission vehicles on California roads by 2030, and of reducing emissions of greenhouse gases to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030, as specified. This bill would instead establish a goal of putting at least 8,000,000 zero-emission vehicles on California roads by 2030 for purposes of the statewide assessment and would require the Energy Commission to also assess the electric vehicle charging infrastructure needed to support the levels of electric vehicle adoption required for the state to meet the goal of ensuring 100% of new cars and light trucks sold in California are zero-emission vehicles by 2035, and evaluate the electric vehicle charging infrastructure needs of specified use cases to ensure an equitable deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Existing law requires the Energy Commission to develop and adopt an investment plan to determine priorities and opportunities for the Clean Transportation Program. As part of the development of the investment plan, existing law requires the Energy Commission, in consultation with the state board, to assess whether electric vehicle charging station infrastructure is disproportionately deployed by population density, geographical area, or population income level, including whether direct current fast charging stations are disproportionately distributed and whether access to these charging stations is disproportionately available, as specified. This bill would require the Energy Commission to also assess whether Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations are disproportionately distributed, whether drivers whose homes are located in rural or urban communities have disproportionate access to charging station infrastructure, whether homes have equal access to electrical panel capacity sufficient to support at-home charging, and whether charging station infrastructure necessary to fulfill the requirements of the California Clean Miles Standard and Incentive Program has been disproportionately distributed.
