Coupled with the SJVAPCD 3k they almost pay you to drive electric if you lease. For some of the deals right now you can earn money on the deal. ;)

I almost bought a car from a guy in L.A. who was selling cars from a "low income electric vehicle study" in 2017. I didn't buy a car but I used the guy for Intel because I thought what he was doing was fascinating.
He said:
"Most poor people flat out didn't want them"
"Lived in an apartment with no where to charge"
"Didn't have a place to park"
"Rented a house that didn't have drive way"
I'm sure there's plenty of poor people in the country that have a place to park and charge.
"THE ABOVE POST CONTAINS MISLEADING AND INACCURATE INFORMATION. PLEASE CONSIDER IT OPINION, NOT FACT". -someone who I offended and is unable to produce the facts in question.

That acronym doesn't exactly roll off the top of the tongue. :) I had to look it up to confirm the area I thought it referred to: San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. Unfortunately (?), I don't live in that area.

I didn't realize that it spanned a larger area than I thought:

Bay Area, Central Coast CCAs launch $65M in EV-charging infrastructure deployment programs to support California’s transportation shift
https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/1 ... 7-cca.html

Four California Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) from the San Francisco Bay Area and Central Coast of California are funding—in total, with state financial contributions—$65 million in infrastructure to support the rising number of electric vehicles (EV) in the state. This funding will support thousands of new EV chargers.

The four CCAs—San José Clean Energy, Silicon Valley Clean Energy, Peninsula Clean Energy, and Central Coast Community Energy—provide competitively priced, clean energy choices to their communities while reinvesting revenues into local and statewide projects and programs. The 21 CCAs in California serve more than 10 million customers.

The CCAs are contributing to amplify the impact of state funding, and when combined with California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) funds, the overall investments total $65 million. The California Energy Commission’s (CEC) Clean Transportation Program funds CALeVIP to support “a streamlined process for getting chargers installed to fill the significant gaps in charging availability. . . .”
Lots more details in the article.

Government of Québec launches $6.7B 2030 Green Economy Plan; emphasis on transportation electrification
https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/1 ... uebec.html

The Premier of Québec François Legault, and the Minister of the Environment and the Fight against Climate Change and Minister responsible for the Laval region, Benoit Charette, unveiled the 2030 Green Economy Plan (PEV 2030) and its first 2021-2026 implementation plan, with an envelope of $6.7 billion over five years. . . .

Over the next five years, $3.6 billion from the 2030 PEV implementation plan will be invested in the transportation sector, which alone accounts for more than 43% of Québec’s GHG emissions.

In addition to this amount, there are investments of $15.8 billion in public transit under the 2020-2030 Québec Infrastructure Plan. Light trains, urban and school buses, taxis, cars and trucks will all be gradually electrified. A target of 1.5 million electric vehicles on Québec roads is targeted by 2030.

Measures that will stimulate the electrification of transport, buildings and industries and GHG reduction include:

Renewal of the discount on the acquisition or lease of an electric vehicle and charging stations for citizens, as well as assistance programs for businesses and the taxi industry;

Enhancement of the requirements of the zero-emission vehicle standard to encourage manufacturers to fuel the Québec market with more vehicles and a greater diversity of models;

Prohibition on the sale of new gasoline vehicles from 2035;

Acceleration of the deployment of fast charging stations by Hydro-Québec and standard charging stations;

Investments of $768 million to make the industrial sector greener and more competitive (support for GHG emission reduction projects, program enhancement and personalized support);

Injection of more than $550 million to reduce GHG emissions from heating residential, commercial and institutional buildings by 50%. This target will be achieved in particular through optimal complementarity between the electricity and gas networks and the use of dual energy, energy efficiency, the conversion of fuel oil to electricity and the use of renewable natural gas and other renewable energy sources. . . .

UK accelerates end of sale of new gasoline and diesel cars to 2030, hybrids to 2035
https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/1 ... 19-uk.html

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed that the government will accelerate the ban on the sale of new gasoline and diesel vehicles, bringing it forward by ten years to 2030, as part of a “Green Industrial Revolution.” The sale of hybrid cars will be allowed until 2035. . . .

To support the acceleration to electrification, the Prime Minister announced:

£1.3 billion (US$1.7 billion) to accelerate the rollout of chargepoints for electric vehicles in homes, streets and on motorways across England, so people can more easily and conveniently charge their cars.

£582 million (US$773 million) in grants for those buying zero or ultra-low emission vehicles to make them cheaper to buy and incentivize more people to make the transition.

Nearly £500 million (US$664 million) to be spent in the next four years for the development and mass-scale production of electric vehicle batteries, as part of a commitment to provide up to £1 billion (US$1.3 billion), boosting international investment into strong manufacturing bases including in the Midlands and North East.

The government will also launch a consultation on the phase-out of new diesel heavy-duty trucks to put the UK in the vanguard of zero-emission freight.

The 10 main points of the overall plan are:

Offshore wind: Producing enough offshore wind to power every home, quadrupling production to 40GW by 2030.

Hydrogen: Working with industry aiming to generate 5GW of low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030 for industry, transport, power and homes, and aiming to develop the first town heated entirely by hydrogen by the end of the decade.

Nuclear: Advancing nuclear as a clean energy source, across large scale nuclear and developing the next generation of small and advanced reactors.

Electric vehicles: Backing car manufacturing bases including in the West Midlands, North East and North Wales to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles, and transforming the national infrastructure to better support electric vehicles.

Public transport, cycling and walking: Making cycling and walking more attractive ways to travel and investing in zero-emission public transport of the future.

Jet Zero and greener maritime: Supporting difficult-to-decarbonise industries to become greener through research projects for zero-emission planes and ships.

Homes and public buildings: Making homes, schools and hospitals greener, warmer and more energy efficient, with a target to install 600,000 heat pumps every year by 2028.

Carbon capture: Becoming a world-leader in technology to capture and store CO2 emissions away from the atmosphere, with a target to remove 10MT of carbon dioxide by 2030, equivalent to all emissions of the industrial Humber today.

Nature: Protecting and restoring the natural environment, planting 30,000 hectares of trees every year.

Innovation and finance: Developing the technologies needed to reach these new energy ambitions and make the City of London the global center of green finance.

CARB and California electric utilities partner to offer point-of-sale reduction of up to $1,500 on PEVs
https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/1 ... -ccfr.html

California electric utilities are
teaming up with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to offer the California Clean Fuel Reward (CCFR), a point-of-sale price reduction of up to $1,500 for the purchase or lease of any eligible new Battery Electric or Plug-in Hybrid vehicle (BEV or PHEV) from a participating automotive retailer. Consumers are able to purchase an eligible vehicle from an enrolled retailer and receive an instant reduction in the purchase price. . . .

For consumers, taking advantage of the reward is easy. When making an EV purchase at an enrolled retailer in California, the retailer will simply include the reward in the transaction at the point of sale. There is no need for the customer to do any paperwork after the sale to receive the reward. The CCFR is one of the most straightforward and inclusive rewards in the market, as it is available to everyone in California.

The lists of enrolled retailers and eligible vehicles will be continually updated as the new retailers and EV models are added.

Southern California Edison is administering the program on behalf of, and in collaboration with, all participating utilities. The CCFR is available to all California residents, regardless of utility provider and participation.

The California Clean Fuel Reward can also be combined with existing post-sale federal, state and local incentives, such as the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project, Clean Cars 4 All, and the Clean Vehicle Assistance Program, to make EVs even more affordable.

The CCFR is funded by electric utilities participating in CARB’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) Program. . . .
