The California government has approved an investment plan of 2.9 billion US dollars to accelerate the realization of the state's goal of building electric vehicle charging piles and hydrogen refueling stations by 2025.
According to the plan approved by the California Energy Commission (CEC) on December 14, this investment will add 90000 new electric vehicle charging piles throughout the state, more than double the 80000 charging piles already installed. The California Energy Commission estimates that these investments, combined with funds from utilities and other projects, are expected to ensure that the state achieves the goal of deploying 250000 charging piles by 2025.
California will allocate US $1.7 billion for the development of charging infrastructure for medium and heavy zero emission vehicles, and US $0.9 billion for the charging infrastructure for light electric vehicles. The plan also includes $118 million for the manufacture of zero emission vehicles and $90 million for hydrogenation infrastructure.
The agency said the funds would support the deployment of thousands of zero emission trucks, school buses and buses "to communities most affected by medium and heavy vehicle pollution".
Compared with 2019, the funding for the Clean Transportation Plan of the California Energy Commission has increased 30 times. The recent state budget will spend an additional $2.4 billion in the next four years, which will be used in the next four years. At least 50% of the funds will be used to benefit priority groups.
Last month, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved a $2.6 billion supplemental plan of clean transportation incentives for consumer vehicle tax rebates and heavy and non road equipment investments.
The two plans are part of Governor Gavin Newson's $54 billion California climate commitment. In August this year, California issued a regulation that by 2035, all new vehicles sold in the state must be electric vehicles or plug-in hybrid vehicles.
