Plugging In California’s Public Schools, Parks, and Beaches
- Aug 3, 2018 6:52 pm GMT
California’s investor-owned utilities want to install approximately $55 million worth of charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) at public schools, state parks and beaches — allowing people to plug-in when they’re hitting the books, the trail, or the beach.
The proposals result from legislation authored by Assemblywoman Autumn Burke, whose district encompasses the Los Angeles International Airport and a Chevron oil refinery, a major source of local air pollution. In response, the California Public Utilities Commission provided the utilities some guidance to build upon the statutory requirements, directing each of them to propose no more than $10 million for state parks and beaches, and no more than $10 million each for public schools. Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric, San Diego Gas & Electric, and Liberty Utilities (CalPeco) have all filed applications.
