The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is tasked with leading the state’s effort to reduce carbon emissions.  Many strategies are being employed but one that impacts our industry the most is increased energy efficiency through the state building code.

CARB is collecting anonymous data to measure the conversion rate of electric vehicle (EV) Capable spaces to EV charging spaces in new commercial buildings in California.  EV Capable spaces are parking spaces that include basic EV charging infrastructure including raceway (enclosed conduit) and panel capacity to accommodate future installation of a Level 2 EV charger.

CARB staff are also trying to better understand any barriers encountered with the installation of Level 2 EV chargers.  Results of this survey will be used to inform development of the California Green Building Standards (CALGreen) Code.

The questionnaire will take about five minutes to complete.  This survey is anonymous and you have until April 12, 2019:

Nonresidential Developer Survey of Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger Installations

Multifamily Developer Survey of Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger Installations

Please take the time to complete this survey.  The results will inform future requirements on your properties!
