The Marin Climate Action Plan 2030 includes transportation related measures directing the County to pursue opportunities to expand the County’s Electric Vehicle (EV) charging network and increase the number of zero-emission vehicles in the County fleet. To date, the County has installed 68 publicly available charging ports and 20 fleet charging ports. Public Works fleet staff has also been replacing County passenger fleet vehicles with electric versions as part of their vehicle turnover processes. Public Works and Sustainability staff have identified additional parking stalls at the General Services Building to upgrade to 13 electric vehicle charging ports.
Preliminary estimate for the potential 13 EV charging ports project is approximately $260,000. Marin Clean Energy (MCE) and Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) offer direct rebates to public agencies installing EV charging stations which could offer rebates up to $84,500 resulting in a net County cost of up to $175,000.
Funding is provided by the Climate Action Plan. As part of the fiscal year 2021-22 budget, the Board of Supervisors set aside $500,000 in one-time funds to support Climate Action Plan (CAP) and Drawdown Marin efforts.
