Light-Duty Zero-Emission Infrastructure, Electric

This program will award up to $5 million to create a more robust light-duty electric vehicle charging station network in California

Eligibility criteria and award limits

The information below summarizes the minimum requirements from the Beneficiary Mitigation Plan that was approved by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) on May 25, 2018.

Funding will be awarded via a competitive solicitation. Table 1 below provides information on funding caps, which are based on whether stations are publicly accessible and whether they are installed at a property that is government- or privately-owned. For stations that are not publicly accessible, only stations that are installed at workplaces and multi-unit dwellings are eligible.

At least 50% of the funding will be awarded to stations that are installed in areas that benefit disadvantaged and low-income communities.

Table 1: Eligible applicants and award limits

Are stations publicly accessible? Property Type Maximum Funding
No Workplaces and Multi-Unit Dwellings Up to 60% of eligible costs
Yes Government-owned properties Up to 100% of eligible costs
Privately owned properties, including non-profits Up to 80% of eligible costs

Additional requirements and scoring criteria will be announced with the release of the solicitation package, which is currently under development.
