Capital of California, Over 20 Years of EV leadership
For over 28 years, Sacramento, the capitol of California, has been a leader in the deployment of EVs. With the establishment in 1994 of the City’s EV Parking Program, Sacramento has been working actively to provide public EV charging at City facilities, aggressively incorporate low-emission vehicles and zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) into fleet operations, and support EVs in the community.
SACRAMENTO’S EV HISTORY
Sacramento is continuing to accelerate EV adoption and foster EV infrastructure and awareness through the “Sac-to-Zero” program funded by Volkswagen Subsidiary “Electrify America”. The “Sac to Zero” plan catalyzed a transformational shift in mobility to zero-emission technologies by installing charging infrastructure, conducting outreach and education, and implementing programs designed to increase access to and use of ZEVs. New programs and services include two new car sharing services, new ZEV bus and shuttle routes, and state-of-the-art electric vehicle charging systems throughout the region.
