SoCalEV Ready Implementation Program

In January 2010, SoCalEV submitted a grant application for $3,195,411 under AB118 PON 09-006: Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology on behalf of the 23 public entity partners of the Southern California Regional Collaborative. Other partners include several universities/colleges (University of California Santa Barbara, University of California Los Angeles, University of California Irvine, California State University Los Angeles, California State University Fullerton, and the Los Angeles Community College District), local government entities (the County of Los Angeles, California Department of Transportation, Cities of Anaheim, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Burbank, Claremont, El Segundo, Inglewood, Lancaster, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Palmdale, Pasadena, Santa Monica, South Pasadena, and Thousand Oaks), and South Coast Air Quality Management District. 

In January 2011, the SoCalEV Ready Implementation Program received $840,750 in funding for an 18 month project. SoCalEV members revised the list of proposed sites to include the upgrade and installation of charging stations that were determined categorically exempt from further environmental review (CEQA), as required by CEC. 

The MOU between CEC and South Coast AQMD was executed in March 2012. MOUs between South Coast AQMD and the partners of SoCalEV are in the process of being executed. The County of Los Angeles released a Master Request for Bid for Electric Vehicle Infrastructure, creating a list of eligible Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE) or “chargers” and installers of EVSE. CEC funded EVSE must be capable of recording usage or revenue recovery capable units whether or not the agency chooses to recover their energy costs. SoCalEV members are eligible for at least two EVSE (or a single dual mount unit) under this grant. The remaining EVSE will be assigned based on the proportion of sites submitted in the original application. The SoCalEV Ready Implementation Program will provide a grant funding of $2,500 per EVSE towards hardware and/or installation costs. SoCalEV members can choose from the eligible list to take advantage of bulk pricing or may select another vendor of their choosing. South Coast AQMD will coordinate the bulk purchasing of chargers with various vendors and track the installation and location of chargers. As chargers are installed under the SoCalEV Ready Implementation Program, a map of charger locations will be posted on this website.
