Rural Residents and Commuters are Key to Meeting PEV Goals

Residents outside of densely populated regions of the state are forced to rely on inadequate charging infrastructure. The clustering of charging stations around cities and more populated areas results in large swaths of the state lacking any of this crucial infrastructure. This lack of charging infrastructure becomes even more glaring when identifying areas that have DC Fast-Charging ports available. More most be done if the state is to meet 2030 targets.

How California Can Meet its Plug-in Vehicle Goals

California has set out ambitious targets for 2020, 2025, and 2030, aiming to have a total of 1 million, 1.5 million, and 5 million PEVs on the road by each year, respectively. At the beginning of 2018, California had roughly 341,000 registered PEVs in total, a number that can be expected to reach 400,000 by the end of 2018. To accomplish its 2030 goal of replacing roughly one-fifth of the current vehicle fleet with PEVs, California will need to register 12 times the current total amount of PEVs on the road, or roughly 380,000 new vehicles annually.

No on 6, Yes on EVs

The state aims to have five million PEVs on the road by 2030, drastically lowering its carbon footprint associated with transportation. Consequently, this will help ensure targets set out in SB-100 are achieved (transportation currently accounts for 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the state). In this way, the gas tax acts as a promoter of the PEV industry and the obtainment of 100 percent clean energy.
