Complex fees for electric vehicles

Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) is offering $1.4 million in technical and financial assistance to increase charger accessibility and support electric vehicle (EV) adoption in multi-family properties. Multi-family properties with four or more units that are customers of the Sunnyvale-based green power aggregator can receive up to $40,000 for EV charger installations. Affordable housing can receive up to $45,000.

Applicants must complete the SVCE FutureFit Assist program prior to receiving setup funding. The program provides free site assessment technical assistance and will help properties assess the best EV charging for their site before the installation process begins.

“Multi-family residents in particular face greater barriers to accessing convenient and affordable home charging, one of the most important factors in deciding to drive electric,” said Liz Gibbons, Board Chair of director of SVCE and board member of Campbell.
