EV CHARGING STATION BILL MOVES FORWARD

With support from both the commercial and residential real estate sectors, AB 1092 (Levine; D-San Rafael) passed the Senate Committee on Environmental Quality.  Currently, there are no statewide building standards for electric vehicle charging infrastructure – however many local jurisdictions have either adopted mandates, or are moving in that direction, to require parking lots provide access to EV charging stations.  In order to avoid a patchwork of requirements throughout the state, this bill directs the Building Standards Commission to provide standards in order to plan for EV infrastructure.  With apologies, last week we typo’d the bill number.  AB 1092 is the correct bill.
