Project Description:

Easy EV is a comprehensive program of activities in Kern County designed to develop the market for electric vehicles and to increase the number of charging stations. PCA would build on past successful efforts that established the San Joaquin Valley Electric Vehicle Partnership (SJVEVP). Activities would include hosting Workplace Charging workshops; developing projects while promoting the SJVAPCD incentive programs; coordinating outreach with automotive dealerships and charging station companies; offering EV curriculum materials for junior high and high school classrooms; and conducting Training for First Responders. PCA would work to build capacity in disadvantaged communities (DACs) by hosting workshops to train volunteers and to develop projects to bring more CARB Cap-and-Trade program money to the region. The project also would provide general support to PCA as we pursue grant funding; sponsorships and memberships to create a sustainable program to improve air quality.
