From the Bay Area Climate Collaborative (BACC): Alameda County Board of Supervisors President Keith Carson, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), the Bay Area Climate Collaborative (BACC), and ten other public agencies today announced the rollout of 90 all-electric vehicles into the fleets of ten Bay Area local governments – the largest government fleet deployment in the U.S. to date.
The public agencies receiving vehicles are: Alameda County, Sonoma County, San Francisco, Concord, Santa Rosa, San Jose, Oakland, Fremont, the Marin Municipal Water District, and Sonoma County Water Agency. The Transportation Authority of Marin also participated with additional support for the Marin Municipal Water District.
This deployment is one in a series that the BACC and its partners are facilitating to assist public agencies in incorporating electric vehicles (EVs) into their fleets. Today’s rollout of 90 all-electric vehicles will yield operational cost savings of more than $500,000 and avoidance of 2 million pounds of CO2 over five years. This supports the region’s efforts to establish the Bay Area as the “EV Capital of the U.S.” and helps meet Governor Brown’s goal of 1.5 million EVs on California roads by 2025. Read more here.
