Sacramento, Calif. – The Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (Sac Metro Air District) and EVgo are pleased to announce a new partnership offering eligible participants in the District’s Clean Cars 4 All program credits of up to $2,000 at electric vehicle charging stations in EVgo’s network. EVgo is a nationwide provider of electric vehicle charging services, including more than 300 fast charging locations across the state of California.

Clean Cars 4 All is a Sac Metro Air District program that helps income-qualified residents buy a zero or near zero emission car. Clean Cars 4 All is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities. The charging credits will be distributed to more than 200 current participants of the Clean Cars 4 All program, with goals to expand to additional program participants in the future once the Sac Metro Air District begins accepting new applications.

“Our partnership with EVgo will provide another option for Clean Cars 4 All program participants to gain access to electric vehicle charging,” said Jaime Lemus, Division Manager for Transportation & Climate Change. “For those living in apartments and other multi-dwelling units, where installing a home charging unit is difficult, these credits will go a long way towards making our program more inclusive and helping our new EV car owners realize a more sustainable lifestyle. We are excited to partner with companies and organizations that share our vision for clean air and a low-carbon future for all.”

More than 80% of Californians live within a 10-mile drive of an EVgo fast charger. There are more than 40 stations located in the multicounty region that includes Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer, Nevada, Solano, San Joaquin, Yolo, Stanislaus, Glenn, Sutter, and Colusa counties. EVgo plans to build 30 more fast charging stations in the greater Sacramento area in the next five years.

“This latest partnership with the Sac Metro Air District builds on EVgo’s unwavering commitment to environmental justice through community partnerships. We can only realize our vision of electric for all by working with others who support equitable access to fast charging,” said Jonathan Levy, EVgo Chief Commercial Officer.
