EV Charge Network Program: Businesses that are PG&E electric customers, including Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) and direct-access customers could be eligible for the EV Charge Network Program. PG&E covers the cost of make-ready and installation, which is typically 60-80% of the total project cost. Program participants have the option to own the chargers, partially paid for by PG&E, as well as choose the charging equipment from an approved vendor list. The program requires a minimum of 10 EV parking spaces per site. If the program is full, you can sign up to be notified when it reopens.
PACE Financing for Energy Upgrades: The Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing program allows property owners to borrow funds to pay for energy improvements, including purchasing and installing Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE). Check out the City of Dublin's business incentives for more information.
PG&E FleetReady Program In May 2018, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved $236 million for PG&E to install make-ready infrastructure that supports medium and heavy-duty electric fleet vehicle charging. Over the next five years, PG&E will install infrastructure at 700 sites, driving the adoption of at least 6,500 additional electric fleet vehicles.
