The California Energy Commission (CEC) has chosen EV Connect, a provider of electric vehicle infrastructure, and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) to conduct an EV infrastructure rollout project.

The pilot program, which will build new EV charging stations at key transit locations, aims to assess the integration of plug-in EVs (PEVs) into the transportation network and establish practices that optimize the consumers’ EV experience while reducing the carbon footprint of Los Angeles.

The implementation of the EV infrastructure project is expected to enable the city of Los Angeles to achieve its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 35% below 1990 levels by 2030.

EV Connect CEO Jordan Ramer said that the study will analyze the integration of EV solutions into a transit network by deploying EV charging stations at the end of the system, such as Canoga and Sierra Madre, and at heavy traffic locations like Union Station and Universal City.

“The data procured from this study will establish industry benchmarks on charge and ride commuters which will help shape the future of multi modal transportation,” Ramer said.
