Electric Vehicles are cheaper to operate than gas burning cars, cost less to maintain and if run on renewable electricity sources, are carbon neutral. To help congregations in California cut pollution from transportation we are happy to share information on EV charging station rebates and a new EV guide created by longtime CIPL supporter Dale Miller.
EV Charging Station Rebates/Incentives:
For SCE customers, check out the Charge Ready program and video on the SCE website. For further information, contact Pam Greene at (626) 422-4025.
For LADWP customers, check out the Charge Up L.A. website for information.
PG&E customers: there are no rebates or incentives at this time. Check out PG&E website for general information on EV Charging Stations.
The Alternative Fuels Data Center has a great overview of many types of rebates and incentives in California encompassing EVs.
EV Guide for Congregations:
In Dale Miller’s guide, you will see the growing list of congregations throughout the Golden State who are installing charging stations and encouraging their members to be mindful of their carbon footprint when making decisions about how to get around. Click here to download the guide.
About a third of our country’s emissions come from transportation, so whether you are carpooling or taking public transit, walking or biking more often, limiting the number of flights you take a year or considering purchase of an electric car, our collective decisions make a difference. As a visionary climate leader, California is expanding support for zero-emission vehicles and congregations can help by making driving electric easier for your members, neighbors and wider community.
If your congregation has an electric vehicle charging station or is exploring the possibility, let us know we’d love to add you to our list.
Thanks for all the ways you and your faith community are charging ahead with climate solutions from your rooftops to your parking lots.
