Are you ready for California’s Electric Vehicle (EV) Future?

Clean Power Alliance is accelerating California’s transition to a clean transportation future through our partnership with the California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) to make sure there is always a place to plug in across our 32 Southern California communities.

Through CALeVIP’s Southern California Level 2 Incentive Project local businesses, commercial properties, multi-family residences, local government facilities along with higher education, and K-12 school districts can apply to receive up to $6,000 in rebate incentives to purchase and install new electric vehicle charging stations in Los Angeles County.

Furthering our commitment to an equitable energy future,  a minimum of 60% of the project’s funding will be invested in Disadvantaged and Low-Income Communities (DAC/LIC).

About the program

California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP), Southern California Level 2 Incentive Project (SCIPL2) will launch on April 5, 2022.

SCIPL2 addresses regional needs for electric vehicle charging infrastructure throughout Southern California (Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties) and supports California’s green energy goals.

Funded by the California Energy Commission (CEC), SCIPL2 provides incentives for EV charger installations and works with local partners like CPA to develop and implement projects that meet current and future regional EV needs for Level 2 charging. 

CALeVIP and its regional incentive projects are made possible through $164 million in state funding. $12.2 million is reserved to incentivize the installation of publicly available EV charging stations in Los Angeles County through SCIPL2 and an additional $1 million is provided for Los Angeles County from CPA funds.

A minimum of 60% of SCIPL2 funding is required to be invested in Disadvantaged Communities/Low-Income regions of Los Angeles County, furthering our commitment to energy justice.
