About SoCal EV

The Southern California Regional Plug-In Electric Vehicle Plan (SoCal EV) is a regional collaborative among 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’s mission is to foster the plug-in readiness of the Southern California Region by coordinating education and outreach; building necessary infrastructure, offering financial incentives such as rebates and rate discounts, streamlining permitting requirements, and other collaborative efforts that support PEVs in the region.

By supporting PEV technology and commercialization, the Southern California region will:
• Improve air quality
• Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
• Reduce reliance on imported oil
• Create new jobs and new economic development
