Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) and Infrastructure Support

Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Commission is established to recommend policies to expand access to ZEV infrastructure and to encourage the purchase and lease of these vehicles. The ZEV Commission, comprised of state agencies, is tasked with conducting ZEV feasibility studies on the following topics:

  • Evaluating opportunities for electrification of the state fleet, including vehicles used by the regional transit authorities; and
  • Assessing surcharges, levies, or other assessments to offset projected gas tax revenue loss from the purchase or operation of ZEVs.
For more information, including available reports, see the ZEV Commission website.
