EV Workshop: A Guide to Installing Public Chargers 

ith electric vehicles becoming ever more popular, cities around the San Joaquin Valley are increasingly aware of the need to have public electric vehicle chargers available. With the abundance of information currently out there, implementation is just within reach. But have you ever wondered if there are funding opportunities available to pay for the installation of a charging station? What about after the chargers are installed? Do you plan on installing a charging station but don't know where to start? 

Join experts from the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz), San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, AECOM consultants, EV charger vendors, and more for answers to your important questions.

In addition, case studies and lessons learned will be presented by the City of Fresno and the Fresno County Rural Transit Agency on charger implementation and operation.

Agenda Topics include:

  • Types of chargers available and siting considerations
  • Infrastructure required and electrical grid capacity
  • What the permitting process can look like, and the availability of “checklists”
  • How to pay for them and Financing options thru grants, incentives, and rebates
  • Operations and maintenance--what happens after the chargers installed?

This workshop is geared towards the public sector and welcome all local governments, government-affiliated institutions, transit operators, school districts and educational institutions. We hope to see everyone here!
