SUMMARY:
Regional and Statewide Commitment to EV Technology

In 2009, San Francisco Mayor, now current State Governor, Gavin Newsom announced a comprehensive plan to make the Bay Area the "Electric Vehicle (EV) Capital of the US."

Subsequently, in 2013, former Governor Jerry Brown's released a Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Action Plan (Plan) outlining California's commitment to a collaboration of government and business best practices, advocacy for investment in electric vehicles and infrastructure, in addition to setting a new goal of five (5) million EV's on state roads by 2030. The Plan was enacted by executive order on January 26, 2018.

In 2017, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed, and Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums committed to and announced a collaborative plan focusing on permitting, incentives for employers, harmonizing local regulations for consistency, government programs, alignment of air quality programs, and roll-out plans for station placement throughout cities, including parking lots and curbside parking. On-going efforts remain consistent with the State's ZEV Plan.
