Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Location Assessment

The State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission (Commission), in partnership with the California Air Resources Board (ARB), must assess whether EVSE in California is located disproportionately by population density, geographical area, or population income level. If the Commission and ARB determine that EVSE has been disproportionately installed, the Commission must use funding from the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Fund, as well as other funding sources, to proportionately install new EVSE, unless it is determined that the current locations of EVSE are reasonable and further California’s energy or environmental policy goals. (Reference Senate Bill 1000, 2018, and California Public Resources Code 25231)
