Sacramento’s $44M Green City plan will radically upgrade city’s EV infrastructure
Sacramento is apparently poised to become the capital of electric vehicles (EVs) in the US; with the city’s EV infrastructure set for a major upgrade via a new $44 million Green City program which will be funded by Electrify America.
The rollout of the Green City plan in Sacramento is scheduled to begin this summer. The plan will work on numerous fronts.
Under the new Green City plan, the city of Sacramento will witness the addition of hundreds of EVs -- electric cars and buses -- and charging stations. The plan essentially aims at building a support network for more sustainable transit, along with ascertaining the possibility of replicating the network in other US cities.
As part of the Green City plan, two car-sharing services -- Envoy and AAA-operated Gig -- will add hundreds of new electric cars to Sacramento. While a pair of Volkswagen’s e-Golf cars and chargers will be made available by Envoy at 71 locations around the city; 260 Chevy Bolt free-floating units -- which can be picked up and parked anywhere -- will be added to the city’s streets by Gig.
Moreover, as per the plan, a pair of new zero-emission electric bus lines will also be rolled out in Sacramento; and 10 EV charging stations will be deployed in the city. The charging stations will have 3-10 chargers per site, and will offer super-fast 350kW charging.
