Announcing the Southern California Regional Plug-in Electric Vehicle Collaboration

Yesterday I joined Mayor Villaraigosa and representatives from local cities, environmental organizations and auto manufacturers to announce the plans for an Electric Vehicle infrastructure that will prepare Los Angeles for the new wave of plug-in vehicles expected to hit roads over the next few years.

This initiative will bring together regional stakeholders to coordinate efforts that will streamline charging station installations at homes, business, and multi-family residential buildings, explore and expand public charging options, and create incentives for EV drivers.

As somebody who has driven an EV for more than a decade, I am very excited about developing a comprehensive EV plan for the region.
