Schneider Electric's Response to CA Gov. Brown's $100 Million EV Charging Station Appropriations
Schneider Electric applauds California State leader’s decision to appropriate recent settlement funds to invest in the State’s increased deployment of widespread Electric Vehicle (EV) infrastructure. Schneider Electric is strongly committed to helping people make the most of their energy and this decision will significantly reduce California’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. This unprecedented action between NRG and the State of California will rapidly increase the amount of available charging stations within key public, private, fleet and residential segments and make it easy to charge practically everywhere.
This deployment will also remove EV adoption barriers by supporting California’s city residents who may live in multi-unit dwellings by promoting charging options at work or in new public parking locations. A project of this magnitude will not only educate California’s driving community, but will serve as a global model of what’s possible to manage energy in smart Cities, States and Nations in the future.
