The state of California has set an ambitious goal of 1.5 million Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) on our roads by the year 2025.  ZEVs use low carbon fuels are a vital component of the state’s effort to reach its Green House Gas (GHG) emission reduction goals. In order to achieve this goal, California estimates that by mid-century, 87% of cars on the road will need to be full ZEVs.  There are still barriers to consumers for the adoption of ZEVs including cost, financing, and range anxiety as a result of a lack of an adequate charging network.

The development of more ZEV charging stations in long-dwell locations, such as state parks and beaches, may provide an additional incentive for drivers to adopt ZEVs. The bill would require each electrical corporation to develop a plan to create a robust charging network at all state parks and beaches within its service territory, by July 31, 2018.
