SF Bay Area receives $5M grant to fund installation of 5,000-plus chargers
Late last week, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District approved a five million dollar grant to fund the installation of 3,000 residential chargers and 2,000 public charging units. In addition, the grant will cover the installation of 50 fast chargers that will be conveniently located within close proximity to the freeway system that traverses the Bay Area. Installation of many of these charging units will be completed within the next year, thus providing the Bay Area with the necessary charging equipment to support the launch of the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt, both of which will be headed to San Fran by year's end.
