Draft Central Sierra Background Assessment Report
The Tuolumne County Transportation Council (TCTC) received a $200,000 Zero Emission Vehicle Readiness (ZEV) Plan Grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) in 2017. This ZEV Grant will study and analyze site locations needed for ZEV infrastructure deployment and this grant is a four county inter-regional partnership with Alpine, Amador, and Calaveras’s regional transportation planning agencies (RTPA’s).
This first project deliverable for this Grant is a Draft Background Assessment Report of the baseline conditions to understand existing gaps in EV infrastructure, establish a baseline of electric vehicles (EV), and project future charging station demand for the region. The Report also gathered a best practices for EV site identification and gap analysis to be used to develop to identify priority areas and shovel ready sites for EV infrastructure.
