The Climate Center offers resources for EV buyers and sellers to accelerate the transportation sector’s shift away from fossil fuels. Working with our partners, we are advancing policies and practices that make it easier and more affordable to drive EVs. And we are seeing results. Here in Santa Rosa where we are incubating solutions, we have the highest percent increase in EV sales in the Bay Area (see graph below) from 2016 to 2017.
Furthermore, because many EV drivers buy electricity from their local Community Choice Energy agency, when they plug in their cars, they are keeping their money in the local economy instead of sending it out to oil companies.
We are learning a lot about the benefits of EV programs at the local level and now we want to share these lessons throughout California and beyond.
