Driving electric supports the communities you serve

The transportation sector remains the single largest contributor of health-impacting air pollutants in Alameda and San Joaquin counties. Electric vehicles are safe to drive — and boost the health of our communities. They also save drivers money! When paired with EBCE’s clean electricity, the cost to refuel electric vehicles can be a fraction of the cost of gasoline or diesel.

Light-duty electric vehicle charging station rebates

Over $5 million is currently available!

EBCE is making electric vehicle charging more accessible through a partnership with the California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP). Save on Level 2 charger purchases and installation costs with rebates for businesses, fleets, workplaces, apartment communities, and more.

With this affordable electric vehicle charging opportunity, you can:

  • Boost property value

Medium and heavy-duty fleet electrification

Alameda and San Joaquin counties have some of the highest volumes of commercial truck traffic in California. Electrifying your medium- and heavy-duty fleet reduces air pollutants, saves money on fuel and maintenance costs, and improves community health. EBCE is supporting our commercial customers to transition to driving electric by providing:

  • FREE fleet electrification technical assistance to help you understand which vehicles and charging infrastructure are right for your day-to-day operations, and

  • concierge services that simplify applying for available incentives and rebates.

Renewable energy for charging network providers

EBCE collaborates with charging networks providers to enable drivers to power their electric cars with 100% renewable energy.

EBCE is the first load-serving entity in the state to receive approval from the California Air Resources Board to register its 100% renewable energy product (Renewable 100) as a certified pathway in the Low Carbon Fuel Standard program. This means that charging network providers can capture highly valuable Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits that were previously only accessible through the purchase of renewable energy credits.

If you are a charging network provider and are interested in opting your charging stations up to our Renewable 100 service, contact us at te@ebce.org.
