The public charging funding lane will offer up to $11.7 million in incentives for charging infrastructure for battery-electric medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. It is funded by the California Energy Commission and administered by CALSTART. 

"With increased funding from the CEC for the EnergIIZE Project, we are thrilled to offer even more funds for this incentive program and look forward to seeing a surge of electric vehicle charging infrastructure installed for public and shared use across California," says Alyssa Haerle, CALSTART's director of infrastructure incentive administration, Clean Fuels and Infrastructure. 

The application period runs concurrently with the EnergIIZE Project's Drayage Public Set-Aside lane. 

The public charging funding is competitive and scored on criteria demonstrating project readiness, cost effectiveness and community benefit. It covers 75% of eligible equipment and software costs, up to a maximum of $750,000 per project if EV Jump Start equity criteria is met or 50% of costs up to a maximum of $500,000 per project if the criteria is not met. 

Eligible EV equipment includes direct current fast chargers, transformers, meter mains, circuit breaker panels and demand-management equipment.
