Finance Commission Recommends New EV Stalls at Civic Center

At the August 3, 2020 Finance Commission meeting, the commissioners voted 5-0 to support staff’s recommendation regarding new electric vehicle (EV) charging stalls in Irvine.

To help offset costs, the Finance Commission also recommended the acceptance of a grant from the Southern California Incentive Project as well as seeking a grant from the Air Quality Management District AB2766 funds¬† (Click to access ab2766-resource-guide.pdf).
