Rep. Barragán Tours LACI Rancho SP EV Car Share Program

-

Rep. Nanette Barragán (CA-44) May 6, joined the CEO of LA Cleantech Incubator (LACI) Matt Petersen, representa­tives from the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, and residents of the Rancho San Pedro public housing complex, for a tour and demonstrat­ion of the LACI Rancho San Pedro electric vehicle (EV) car share program.

The program inspired Rep. Barragán’s authorship of H.R. 6662, the EVs for All Act, which she introduced in Feb. 9, 2022.

The EVs for All Act would establish a U.S. Department of Energy grant program to support electric vehicle car sharing for public housing residents, with investment­s in building EV charging stations in underserve­d and pollution-impacted communitie­s. Barragán and LACI CEO Matt Petersen participat­ed in a demonstrat­ion of the LACI Rancho San Pedro EV car share program.

Petersen urged Congress to pass H.R. 6662 to replicate proven zeroemissi­on vehicle programs that prioritize EV access for communitie­s suffering from pollution and inadequate access to clean transporta­tion options.
