About CALeVIP

Funded by the California Energy Commission and implemented by the Center for Sustainable Energy, CALeVIP works with local partners to develop and implement EV charger incentive projects that meet regional needs for Level 2 and DC fast chargers. The statewide project aims to provide a streamlined process for getting chargers installed to fill the significant gaps in charging availability.

Additional funding is being provided by Sonoma Clean Power and the Northern Sonoma County Air Pollution Control District.

CALeVIP and its regional incentive projects are made possible through a grant by the California Energy Commission’s Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program, which supports innovations in transportation and fuel technologies.
