Infrastructure Funding Through HVIP

To further support the adoption of battery-electric vehicles by reducing charging infrastructure costs, a voucher enhancement for EVSE of up to $30,000 per vehicle voucher is available. This infrastructure voucher enhancement can be combined with any other funding source, not to exceed 100 percent of total capital cost. The voucher enhancement is available to vehicle vouchers requested on or after December 15, 2017. This is being treated as a pilot enhancement and serves as a short-term funding mechanism to help offset some of the infrastructure cost. It is anticipated that EVSE enhancements would continue to be issued at least through 2019. All infrastructure voucher enhancements are approved on a case-by-case basis. Up to $30,000 per battery-electric vehicle voucher can be used for EVSE infrastructure.

In the case of multiple vehicle voucher requests at the same location, associated EVSE voucher enhancements could be combined to cover an overall EVSE equipment budget. For example, five vehicle voucher requests with five EVSE voucher enhancement requests could cover up to $150,000 in total EVSE equipment cost.

The vehicle voucher dealer or purchaser would send a short summary of the proposed equipment purchase and a breakout of anticipated cost to Tom Brotherton at CALSTART (tbrotherton@calstart.org). CARB and CALSTART would review and approve. CALSTART would reimburse the final incurred cost of EVSE as the infrastructure project is completed. The payment would be made to either the dealer or purchaser, whichever party requested the EVSE enhancement and incurred the EVSE cost.

What does the EVSE voucher enhancement cover?

Funding will only pay for EVSE equipment, related battery energy storage, or software that is used for smart charging. The voucher enhancement cannot cover labor cost or utility work.

EV Infrastructure Readiness Tips for Fleets

  1. Contact your utility as soon as possible; extensions can take 2 years

  2. Optimize your upfront cost: ratio of electricity used/power brought

  3. Optimize your $/kWh rate: based on load profile & demand charge

  4. Confirm any permitting that may be required; contractor can advise

  5. Plan for expansion of fleet, not just the current required capacity
