SDG&E readies charging net for medium and heavy EVs

San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) wants to install a charging network for medium and heavy duty vehicles. 3,000 such charging stations may be installed once the regulator CPUC grants SDG&E permission.

According to Green Car Congress, the new proposal would enable a much wider expansion of charging stations in the region, “which is home to more than 103,000 Class 2 through Class 8 commercial vehicles, including trucks that operate around the congested ports of entry along the US-Mexico border.”

Just recently, San Diego Gas & Electric got approval to kick off several pilot projects including implementing charging stations at San Diego’s port and airport. And last September, SDG&E announced to offer 1,000 dollar rebates to teachers and first-responders who buy electric vehicles. The utility said that it would use 500,000 dollars of its own shareholder money to fund the scheme over the coming three years.
