Thanks to grants from the California Energy Commission and the California Workforce Investment Board, NOVA is leading a Silicon Valley initiative to promote consumer adoption of electric vehicles (EV). The Silicon Valley Electric Vehicle Opportunity Initiative (EVOI) includes Prospect Silicon Valley, the LightMoves and EV Charging Pros consultancies, the San Jose State University College of Engineering, the California Community Colleges and San Francisco Bay Area colleges, and the work2future and NOVA workforce boards.
Gov. Brown has set an ambitious goal of having 1.5 million zero emission vehicles on California roads by 2025. The state, however, may not be able to reach this goal without new solutions to the challenge of EV charging in multi-unit dwellings (MUD).
Led by consultants Jim Helmer and John Kalb, EVOI has produced two resources for the California Apartment Association, Tri-County Division (CAA) that address the challenges and opportunities for MUD EV charging: a comprehensive report and a Powerpoint presentation providing basic information for apartment owners and managers.
EVOI will post additional MUD material as it becomes available.
