EV CHARGING STATION BILL MOVES FORWARD

With support from both the commercial and residential real estate sectors, AB 1022 (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.
