San Jose, CA (Oct. 12, 2021) — As Washington continues to negotiate a federal package, Silicon Valley Leadership Group recognized California’s bold action in prioritizing climate infrastructure investments with the weekend signing of AB 970 by California Governor Gavin Newsom. The new law, authored by Assemblymember Kevin McCarty, spurs development of electric vehicle charging infrastructure by streamlining local permitting requirements. SVLG CEO Ahmad Thomas pointed to the move as one that accelerates the transition to electric vehicles by both enhancing California’s business ecosystem as well as helping to meet the state’s ambitious climate goals.
In a move that is unprecedented in our automotive history, yesterday President Biden signed an Executive Order setting a goal for 50 percent of car sales to be electric by 2030, the largest EV adoption target for America to date.
California Building Standards Commission approved a proposal to require 10 percent of parking spaces to have infrastructure for EV charging for new multifamily dwellings.
