On October 8, 2015 Governor Brown signed into law SB513 (Beall), which became effective on January 1, 2016. The bill allowed air districts with an authorized AB923 program to collect a two-dollar fee pursuant to CA Health and Safety Code §44229 to be additionally used for: “The funding of alternative fuel and electrical infrastructure projects solicited and selected through a competitive bid process”
A request for proposals (RFP) was issued by MBARD in March 2016 which solicited a five-year agreement to deploy electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure subject to MBARD annual review. In 2017 (year-one of the program), MBARD provided funding to install the first high power (200kW) 6 station DCFC complex along the Highway 101 corridor and funding to install 35 Level 2 EV infrastructure in workplace, destination and multiple unit dwelling (MUD) locations all within District boundaries. Contract year-two and year-3 saw the addition of 35 more DCFC stations and 42 more Level 2 stations (see photo gallery and station map below). Year-four will focus on additional DCFC and Level 2 stations within San Benito, Santa Cruz and Monterey.
