LADWP’s announcement to expand public EV charging hubs in underserved communities and increase the Used EV Rebate to $4,000 for EZ-Save customers follows the release of LA100 Equity Strategies, a two-year study undertaken with significant community input by researchers from U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and UCLA. The study offers a detailed analysis of L.A.’s clean energy investment inequities and provides over 50 measures to address them. The new network of city-owned “fast-charger” E-Hubs highlights a series of Powered by Equity initiatives that LADWP will undertake to enable all customers to realize the full benefits of L.A.’s transition to a clean energy future.
This LADWP customer parking lot features 24 Level 2 EV chargers and three publicly available DC fast chargers. The site is an example of LADWP’s plans to dramatically expand publicly accessible EV chargers.
