SJV Clean Transportation: January Update

Welcome to the January 2018 San Joaquin Valley Clean Transportation Center Newsletter. With funding from the California Energy Commission, CALSTART opened the Center with the goal to accelerate the use of clean vehicles and fuels and help the region more quickly meet air quality targets.

Register Now for 'EVs Made EZ Workshop' in Stockton Next Tuesday, Jan. 23

California now has more than 350,000 electric vehicles (EVs) on the road as of the end of 2017. With battery prices coming down and charging ranges increasing, EVs increasingly play a key role to help improve our region’s poor air quality – especially since up to 80 percent of ozone pollution is caused by emissions from cars, trucks and other mobile sources.   

Find out about EVs, charging and current incentive funding programs for both vehicles and infrastructure at the "EVs Made EZ Workshop" on Jan. 23 in Stockton. The event will be from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the PG&E Stockton Energy Education Center, 3136 Boeing Way. Large and small employers, including hospitals, school districts, public agencies, and eTRIP employers in particular, along with developers and owners of multi-unit dwellings, are encouraged to attend the workshop.

Panels and speakers include:
  • Introduction to Electric Vehicles and Charging Stations: San Joaquin Valley Electric Vehicle Partnership (SJVEVP), which is hosting the workshop
  • Electric Vehicles Panel: HUMMINGBIRDEV, First Priority GreenFleet, GreenPower Bus, Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE)
  • EV Charging Equipment Panel:  EVBox, Tritium, Envision Solar, ChargePoint
  • EV Incentives Panel: PG&E, Southern California Edison, San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD), California Capital Access Program (CalCAP)
Vehicles also will be on display. A-Z Bus Sales, CSE, EVBox, First Priority GreenFleet, HUMMINGBIRDEV, PG&E, SJVAPCD and Tritium are sponsors for the event. 

Cost for the workshop is $20, which includes continental breakfast and lunch. Click the link below to register. For more information, contact Project Clean Air (PCA) at (661) 847-9756. The SJVCTC is a member of the SJVEVP, a business-led regional collaborative that promotes the expansion of EVs in California’s San Joaquin Valley. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program provides partial funding for PCA and the SJVEVP.

Sonoma County to Offer EV Webinar Jan. 18 from 1-2 p.m. 

The County of Sonoma General Services Department will host a free webinar on Wednesday, Jan. 18, from 1 to 2 p.m. (PST). "EVs and Building a Charging Station Network  Fleet Best Practices and Lessons Learned" is the topic of the webinar.

Sonoma County began integrating electric vehicles into its fleet and developing an EV infrastructure in 2009 to support the growth of this alternative fuel transportation choice. During the last eight years, the county's EV network has expanded to 227 publicly available charging stations at 15 sites in eight cities and towns. 

In 2015, Sonoma County was ranked as the #1 Government Green Fleet in North America and also received a U.S. EPA Clean Air Excellence Award for Transportation Efficiency Innovations. 

“The CALSTART San Joaquin Valley Clean Transportation Center is a joint project between CALSTART and the California Energy Commission (CEC).
