EV Charging for all Coalition

Take Action Now

Image
California’s multi-family residents deserve the same easy and affordable access to power for EV charging that single-family residents have enjoyed since 2015. To expand access to the environmental, health, and financial benefits of clean transportation, the EV Charging for All Coalition advocates for equitable electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in the CALGreen building codes.

Thanks for commenting on the CALGreen code

In June, EVCAC submitted a comment letter about the CALGreen building code to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) expressing support for proposed language that increases EV charging access for residents of multifamily housing. The letter was co-signed by 47 organizations.

EVCAC in the news

The EV Charging for All Coalition was quoted in a recent report by Consumer Reports on public retail charging. 1.25 million public chargers are needed to meet projected demand, but so far less than one tenth of those chargers have been installed.

Ensuring equitable, safe, and convenient access to EV charging for all California residents.
We envision a world where all Californians can access affordable electrified transportation at home or at work.

This includes in multi-family housing and especially in the communities most burdened by air pollution. This equitable access allows all residents to affordably charge EVs and enjoy their environmental and financial benefits; increases EV adoption; and helps California achieve ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preserving a livable climate for all.

By organizing a diverse coalition representing multiple stakeholders, we will strengthen California state building codes, programs, and policies to ensure 100% access to affordable and convenient EV charging for all, especially for residents of multi-family housing who will otherwise continue to lack access to the benefits of EVs.

We center the voices of historically disenfranchised communities, including communities of color.
Affordable, convenient EV charging should be available to every resident
Whether homeowner or renter; urban, suburban or rural; in single- or multi-family housing; high-, moderate- or low-income; and with on- or off-street parking

We partner with anyone who shares our goals, including climate and environmental justice organizations, faith communities, labor unions, apartment and condo residents, clean transportation advocates, companies, elected officials, etc.
