California utility regulators approve 15 EV pilot projects


“The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has approved 15 transportation-electrification pilot projects totaling over $40 million aimed at helping accelerate electric vehicle (EV) adoption and cutting greenhouse-gases (GHGs) in the state. CPUC explains the decision approves, with modifications, four Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) projects; five Southern California Edison (SCE) projects; and six San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) projects designed to speed adoption of EVs, improve air quality, and reduce GHG emissions. Representing a total investment of approximately $41 million, the projects include electrification of school buses, delivery trucks, airport/seaport equipment, truck stops, and commuter locations, as well as the installation of fast charging for urban locations and incentives for car dealerships. Additionally, $1.7 million will be set aside for evaluation of the projects upon their completion, CPUC notes.”
