California surpasses 100,000 public and shared private EV chargers installed statewide

California has surpassed 100,000 public and shared private electric vehicle chargers installed statewide. This milestone follows approval of a $1.9-billion investment plan that accelerates progress on the state’s electric vehicle charging and hydrogen refueling goals.

The plan details how the money will be spent with at least 50% dedicated to benefiting communities disproportionately impacted by pollution. With this funding, the state expects to reach its goal of 250,000 public chargers in the next few years.

This is on top of more than 500,000 at-home chargers that Californians have installed for personal use.

One in every four new cars sold last year in California was zero-emission. Last year, the state also surpassed its goal of selling 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles and its goal to install 10,000 fast chargers for electric vehicles — both ahead of schedule.

To improve the EV charging experience, the California Energy Commission (CEC) is developing the first state regulations for charger reliability and reporting. A stringent performance standard will apply to all new publicly funded infrastructure and the chargers will be required to disclose operational data to help drivers make more informed choices.
