Electric Vehicle Initiatives

Electrify America Green City

The Department of Public Works is working to expand electric vehicle infrastructure and awareness. For over 20 years, Sacramento has been a leader in the deployment of electric vehicles (EVs). In 1994, the City adopted its first policy on electric vehicles with creation of the free parking program for EVs in City-owned garages. Since then, the City has been working actively to provide public EV charging at City facilities and to support EVs in the community. 

Not only can EVs be cheaper to operate and maintain, but they are cleaner and deliver a host of community benefits, improving air quality and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These are benefits that can be enjoyed locally, but also contribute to the health of the region. EVs and other types of zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) are a critical strategy for achieving long-term greenhouse gas and air quality goals, and provide a key opportunity to strengthen an emerging ZEV-fuel industry.
