Energy and Climate Change

Plug-in San Diego

In July 2015, SANDAG launched Plug-in San Diego (Plug-in SD) through a two-year California Energy Commission (CEC) grant. Plug-in SD implemented recommendations from the Electric Vehicle (EV) Readiness Plan through a combination of resource development, training, technical assistance through an EV Expert, and outreach.

In 2017, SANDAG was awarded an additional grant from the CEC to continue and expand upon existing work. In addition to the technical assistance for member agencies, employers, and multi-family properties, Plug-in SD has developed a regional needs assessment to help document existing public infrastructure and identify gaps, including access, in the current public charging network.

Plug-in SD provides a technical expert (the “EV Expert”) who is available to assist stakeholders in person, via email, or by phone. To schedule a consultation, email or call (866) 967-5816. The EV Expert will be available through the end of calendar year 2019 or until funds are fully expended, whichever comes first. Plug-in SD developed an EV Expert Summary Report which documents the number and types of inquiries received through May 2019, along with analysis and future recommendations for the EV Expert. The resources and reports developed through Plug-in SD can be found below.
