Benefits of easy-to-install and cost-effective charging infrastructure

Money bag

Save Money

EVs are 4X more efficient than diesel and natural gas engines and offer significant fuel cost savings.1 Plus you can take advantage of available incentives, including PG&E's cost offsets of electrical infrastructure, through the EV Fleet program.

No CO2

Eliminate Tailpipe Emissions

Electric vehicles are more efficient than conventional vehicles, have zero tailpipe emissions and have a smaller carbon footprint to help you reach sustainability goals.

Tools

Simplify Maintenance

Electric vehicles have fewer and less complex parts, which simplifies maintenance, results in less down time, and lowers overall lifetime operation and maintenance costs.

Clipboard

Demonstrate Leadership

Your company can help lead the way to a cleaner, greener California and be a good environmental steward.

Rocket

Get Ahead

Take advantage of PG&E incentives while getting a jump start on regulatory requirements that may be part of the State’s push to a cleaner future.

California

Support California’s Goals

Transportation is the single largest source of climate-related pollution.2 To help the state reach its greenhouse gas reduction goals in 2030 and 2050, we must electrify our fleets.

PG&E offers infrastructure incentives and charger rebates to offset costs


Through the EV Fleet Program, PG&E will construct, own, and maintain all electrical infrastructure from the transformer to the customer’s meter.

Through the EV Fleet Program, PG&E will construct, own, and maintain all electrical infrastructure from the transformer to the customer’s meter. In select instances, PG&E also covers behind-the-meter infrastructure.


Fleet operators will design, build, own, operate and maintain the electrical infrastructure from the customer meter to the EV charger.*


*In select instances, PG&E may cover behind the meter infrastructure as well.



Infrastructure incentives
