The committee is a subcommittee of the Task Force on the Environment and will hold bi-monthly meetings.  If you are interested in participating, please find the application and committee details here and apply by April 3rd! No experience necessary. 

Electric Vehicle Action Plan

Electric Vehicle charging helps reduce emissions and clean the air. We're working hard to expand and improve our charging infrastructure to help you drive clean.  The Electric Vehicle Action Plan is a big step forward for the community.

Priority Parking Rules:

WHITE and GREEN clean air decals are currently valid through January 1, 2019. White, green and ZEV decals allow you to park in any on-street, metered parking space in Santa Monica without charge for the maximum amount of time allowed by that meter.  In other words, if you’re at a 2-hour meter, you can park there free for 2 hours—but beyond that, you’re subject to ticketing for overstaying your welcome. Clean Air Vehicle decals are issued by the state.


Are You Plug-in Ready?

The electrical utility serving Santa Monica, Southern California Edison, has a library of resources to help consumers Get Ready to Plug-In.
The prevailing wisdom from pundits in the "green media" is that California will play a leading role ushering in widespread adoption of electric cars in the United States and abroad. So for all early-adopters and those in the vanguard of the environmentally responsible, this is a great time to lead by example.
