EVCS, a prominent electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging network operator on the West Coast, has received a $1.88 million grant from the California Energy Commission’s (CEC) Reliable, Equitable, and Accessible Charging for multi-family Housing (REACH) program.
These funds will be used to facilitate the installation of two DC fast chargers and 245 Level 2 chargers at multi-unit residential complexes in Southern California. The initiative is dedicated to providing accessible and affordable EV charging services to low-income and disadvantaged communities.
This grant represents a significant leap forward in EVCS’ mission to expand the accessibility of EV charging solutions across the West Coast. The company is committed to making electric vehicle charging as convenient as possible for residents living in multi-family housing units.
Earlier this year, EVCS also secured a grant of $1.9 million from the CEC’s Rural Electric Vehicle (REV) program. This additional funding will be utilized to install 30 fast chargers in Northern and Central California, further reinforcing the company’s dedication to enhancing EV charging infrastructure in the state.
