Permit Approved! Cities and Counties Accelerate Electric Vehicle Charging

Veloz Webinar
Thursday, April 29
10 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. (PDT)
California is leading the way toward a massive transformation to electric cars and City and Counties are critical to accelerating the momentum.  When Cities and Counties adopt policies that streamline the process to install electric vehicle charging, everyone wins.  Widespread charging stations are a necessity to reduce range anxiety and to give Californians the confidence they need to purchase an electric car.

At this webinar we will showcase the video that Veloz and GO-Biz produced called Clearing the Path to Permitting Charging Stations – AB1236 that educates city and county officials about AB 1236 and the importance of permit streamlining in their region. You will also hear an exciting conversation moderated by Jonathan Levy, Vice President, EVgo and a Veloz Board Director with the following panelists:

  • Assemblymember David Chiu, 17th Assembly District
    Lead Author of AB 1236 (2015) Permit Streamlining Bill
  • Governor’s Office of Business & Economic Development (GO-Biz)
    Kielan Rathjen, Special Advisor
  • California Energy Commission
    Brian Fauble, Energy Commission Specialist II
