Reality - I wrote the state and posted the official letter years ago, this was prior to the VW monies, back when the Bolt was not out yet. They had funded CA "Charging Corridors" prior to 2016, the Final planning was in 2015. Now try to find them. I will see if I can find the letter since I normally don't keep junk mail.Can you please explain what that statement means? $800M of EA's $2B penalty is to be spent in California. How are they being blocked? The only complaint that I read from EA in their reports to CARB were that getting chargers through the permitting process with municipalities in California was much more arduous and time consuming than in other states. See pg.6 of EA's latest report to CARB.

California effectively dissolved their corridor plans before VW settled. So the clock was set back to zero when VW took over.
This has nothing to do with EA. It has to do with EV Corridors, Public Propaganda Programs, City Of The Future (Sacramento was awarded, big surprise), L2 and CCS urban sites, low income area sites, and Hydrogen Fuel Stations.
Show me one that is not Hydrogen or in Sacramento, or a Low Income Project (failed by design).
Most importantly, show me a California (CEC) Pre-VW CCS station. Go look at the main artery, the 5 Fwy, all five CEC CCS stations were killed recently after installation, no CEC anymore. Look at the LA/Nevada corridor. No CEC projects in process. The only one they worked on was from the SF suburbs to the Ski Resorts, but it wasn't a CEC corridor. And it's mostly funded with non-CA monies.
Prove me wrong. Virtually all CCS in California are non-CEC/VW because they are private projects.
