Senior Vice President, QED Environmental Systems
California’s Data-Driven Electric Vehicle Incentive Program Design
The transportation sector persists as California’s leading source of greenhouse gas emissions, and consumer incentives are a vital strategy to accelerate the transition away from gas-powered to electric vehicles (EVs). While the EV share of new car sales in California is increasing year-over-year, the purchase prices of new EVs are cost-prohibitive for most low-income consumers. With a directive from state policymakers to ensure the transition to cleaner vehicles includes all Californians, the Center for Sustainable Energy recently completed an affordability analysis of new (and used EVs), the EV options available to low-income families, and the level of incentives needed to make EVs affordable to more consumers. The results of the analysis directly contributed to the California Air Resources Board staff proposal to dramatically increase incentive amounts for low-income consumers across multiple programs. This presentation will review the EV affordability analysis, the proposed incentive program changes, and the implications for low-income consumers and families in the San Diego region.
