One Mile One Charger Program – City of Torrance
The One Mile, One Charger Program aims to improve air quality and facilitate public infrastructure to support residents, employees, and visitors to never be more than one (1) mile away from a publicly accessible EV Charger. The City of Torrance used GIS to map where EV charging stations should be located to ensure the project goals were met after implementation. Additionally, they consulted the public by doing outreach to understand EV charger locations needs. During Phase I of implementation the City successfully pursued grant funding from Mobile Source Reduction Committee (MSRC) and the California Energy Commission (CEC) to install a total of 14 Level II and 6 DC Fast Stations. And most recently through Phase II, the City secured grant funding from Mobile Source Reduction Committee (MSRC) to expand electric vehicle infrastructure to fleet applications.
