Electric Vehicles (EV)
Reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions
According to the California Air Resources Board (CARB), passenger vehicles are the top emitter of GHG the state. California has a goal of 5 million zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) on the roads by 2030 and 250,000 EV charging stations installed by 2025. Infrastructure targets for chargers and hydrogen fueling stations to support this substantial growth can be found in the Path to 2030.
