EV Ready Program

By 2025, San Mateo County is expected to have over 45,000 electric vehicles (EVs), which means that many more drivers will need access to charging stations at home and work. Our EV Ready Program provides incentive funding totaling $24 million and technical assistance for the installation of EV charging. The program is designed for workplaces, multi-unit dwellings, colleges, public parking garages/lots, and other public locations.

It includes:

  • free technical assistance
  • access to negotiated, volume EV charging station pricing
  • significant incentives covering most or all of the installation costs

What is the next step?

Applications for funding are not yet being accepted. The first step for interested program applicants is to complete the Technical Assistance Application. This will allow us to provide you with information about applying for funding, eligibility, and other EV Ready program updates. The Technical Assistance Application is available now on the EV Ready Customer Portal:

Does my project qualify for incentives?

Your site may qualify for incentives from one or more of the EV Ready funding options. These include incentives from the CALeVIP Peninsula-Silicon Valley Project, Peninsula Clean Energy EV Charger Incentives, and an annual grant program funded by Bay Area Air Quality Management District. After you complete the Technical Assistance Application, we will be able to help you evaluate the programs and your eligibility. We can provide additional information as these programs become available.

Free technical assistance

As part of the EV Ready program, Peninsula Clean Energy offers free technical assistance for your EV charging station project through its program partner, CLEAResult. For eligible properties, CLEAResult will provide project scope and design, helping to minimize cost and maximizing value.

 

In addition to free technical assistance, you may benefit from lower pricing on EV charging stations. Peninsula Clean Energy is negotiating volume pricing for EV charging. A list of preferred vendors will be available to program participants.

Interested program applicants should complete the Technical Assistance Application on the EV Ready Customer Portal.
