While most electric vehicle owners rely on charging their cars at home, "many low-to-moderate-income people who live in apartments or affordable housing may find installing and accessing charging infrastructure is more complicated." Encouraging more widespread EV use in these communities means providing ready access to chargers for residents of multi-unit buildings. "The city recently received a $1.8 million grant from the California Energy Commission that will allow it to provide Level 2 chargers at 13 community centers and libraries, primarily in low-income neighborhoods, including Coloma and Colonial Heights." Sacramento has also introduced an electric car sharing program "to introduce more electric cars and stations to low-income neighborhoods" and passed an ordinance that "will require new nonresidential and multifamily developments to include electric vehicle infrastructure."
