Palo Alto is a leader in electric vehicle (EV) adoption. EVs now account for more than 30% of new car sales in Palo Alto, with one in seven households owning or leasing an EV. With these growing rates of EV adoption, the City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) wants to make EV charging more accessible.

Installing EV chargers is now easier than ever with the EV Charging Technical Assistance program. This program provides personalized technical assistance, free of charge, to support owners and managers of multifamily properties, schools and nonprofits. Together with City rebates of up to $80,000 and potential state and local grants, now is the time to install EV charging equipment on your property.
