Electric vehicle advocates call for Californian plug-in vehicle bills to be rubber-stamped
The bills have already been passed by the California Legislature and are waiting for Governor Brown’s signature.
The bills comprise:
SB359– Saves the CA CVRP Rebate Program and provides additional funding to last through June 2014
SB454 – EV Open Access – Charge at any paid charging station with a credit card, and know the price you'll pay
AB1092 – EV Building Standards – Moves the process forward for EV charging to be included in CA building code
AB8 – $2 billion for long-term state alternative fuels funding, including significant funding for EV related projects
The bills would further accelerate take-up of EVs in California, which is already the leading EV market in the US as well as the largest overall vehicle market.
California also has ambitious goals for further EV take-up. Its Zero Emissions Vehicle regulation (ZEV) requires that 1.4 million electric, plug-in hybrid and fuel cell vehicles be sold by 2025
