ZEV Permitting Olympics
Streamline Permitting for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations to Accelerate Economic Recovery
Permitting Olympics: Streamlined Counties
|Alpine County||Alameda County||Lassen County|
|San Francisco City and County||Marin County||Sacramento County|
|Napa County||San Luis Obispo County|
|Tuolumne County||Santa Barbara County|
Gold (100% of county’s jurisdictions), Silver (75%), Bronze (50%)
Getting to 100 percent ZEV sales hinges on rapidly building out plug-in charging and hydrogen fueling infrastructure, an effort that will accelerate job growth and our economic recovery.
To help meet the challenge, GO-Biz and our partners have created a new initiative to streamline permitting for ZEV infrastructure – the Permitting Olympics. Our first competition focuses on electric vehicle charging stations – which has a rule book established by AB 1236 (Chiu 2015). In these Olympics, winning means everyone earns a gold medal.
Medals will be awarded county by county, based on all the jurisdictions within the county:
- Counties with 100% of their region streamlined = Gold
- Counties with 75% of their region streamlined = Silver
- Counties with 50% of their region streamlined = Bronze
The Goal: All counties ‘Gold’ by Earth Day (April 22nd), 2021.
The Method: Local “champions” work with their local governments to facilitate the adoption of permit streamlining processes.
