Joint Venture Initiative Receives Grant to Build EV Charging Center Near Convention Center

Joint Venture Garage

The California Energy Commission has awarded a $469,000 grant to a public-private group that includes Joint Venture Silicon Valley’s SEEDZ Initiative to build a destination Electric Vehicle Charging Center in the new Tasman Parking Garage adjacent to the Santa Clara Convention Center and across the street from Levi’s Stadium and California’s Great America theme park.

Collectively, these venues will attract more than 4.5 million visits a year, making it a high-value destination site for placement of EV charging infrastructure. The EV charging center will demonstrate new approaches for energy management and charging station utilization, and will serve as an example for creating similar destination-based charging centers around the state and beyond.
