Southern California PEV Readiness Plan

In June 2011, the South Coast Air Quality Management District and SCAG, in conjunction with their regional partners, applied for two plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) readiness grants and were successful in both applications. The first grant, awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy, resulted in the development of six regional PEV readiness plans throughout the state of California, including one for Southern California.

The second successful grant was awarded by the California Energy Commission. The purpose of the project was to develop two complementary subregional plans in collaboration with Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) and South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG.)
