Reasons why EVs are Better  

Southern California –
Charging Toward a Green Future!

With a new generation of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) hitting the market, Southern California needs to be ready.  The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) with its partners from the Southern California Regional Plug-In Electric Vehicle Plan (SoCal EV) have launched to educate and receive feedback from potential PEV drivers in the region, so we can most effectively serve your plug-in needs.

Transportation is one of the largest and fastest growing contributors to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with climate change. The state of California has the highest ratio of car ownership in the world, while the transportation industry contributes more than 40% of statewide greenhouse gas emissions.

With its car-crazy culture, Southern California needs to be ready. SoCal EV is a collaboration of cities, utilities, automakers, local and regional government agencies, businesses and others in the Southern California region who are actively engaged in supporting and building the necessary infrastructure for the commercial launch of electric vehicles.

SoCal EV will continue to evolve and add new partners as the region becomes plug-in ready. Please come back to this website frequently, and check us out as we add new information.
