Agencies around Marin are adding electric vehicles to their fleet and installing or upgrading electric vehicle charging equipment.

The Transportation Authority of Marin is here to assist agencies towards adding more electric vehicles including plug-in hybrids to their fleet and installing the right level of charging equipment. By taking advantage of resources and incentives, agencies can simplify the process and save thousands of dollars along the way.

30,000+ plug-in electric vehicles in the Bay Area

50% of California’s electric vehicle purchase rebates are used in the Bay Area

7 out of every 1,000 people in Marin County have an electric vehicle

5,000+ test drives in electric vehicles at Drive Electric events

Looking towards the future

TAM is continually working to identify private, regional, state and federal grant opportunities to enable Marin County’s cities, towns and agencies to maximize installation of publicly accessible EV charging stations.

TAM supports the transition from fossil-fuel-based transportation to more sustainable alternate fuel vehicles. Switching to alternative fuel vehicles such as electric vehicles reduces harmful air pollution levels in our community and decreases greenhouse gas emissions. TAM supports EVs in an effort to create a more sustainable future for generations to come.

EV Fleet Rebate Program: The fleet rebate program was developed to assist public agencies that replace internal combustion engine vehicles with electric (fuel cell and battery) and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

TAM’s incentive provides matching funding of up to $5,000 per vehicle, reducing the cost of a new electric vehicle by up to $10,000 when combined with the California Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP)

Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Grant Program: The EV equipment grant program was developed to assist public agencies that install employee-only or publicly accessible EV charging stations. Based on a first-come first-serve basis until funds are depleted.

Provides matching funds of 88.25% of the complete installation up to $1,500 for one Level 1 charger (per charging head) or up to $3,000 for one Level 2 charger (per charging head)

Plug-in electric vehicles and emerging alternative fuels are promising technologies for reducing pollution and helping the region achieve emission reduction targets. As zero-emission and hybrid cars become more popular, and renewable diesel becomes more widely available, we expect increasing adoption of next-generation alternatively fueled vehicles, including electric vehicles (EVs). To help support this trend, TAM has an Electric Vehicle/Alt Fuel Advisory Working Group, and sponsors or co-sponsors Drive Electric educational test drive events throughout the county. We also support two EV programs for public agencies.

TAM has set up a great resource page for all of your agency EV needs.
