DRIVING TO CLEANER TRANSPORTATION
CITY OF TORRANCE – “ONE MILE, ONE CHARGER”

The “One Mile, One Charger” project aims to ensure that EV drivers are never more than one mile from a charging station while in the city of Torrance.

With a $405,940 grant awarded by the California Energy Commission in 2011, the city of Torrance is working to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and meet its community’s growing demand for publicly accessible charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EV).

The city’s “One Mile, One Charger” project aims to ensure that EV drivers are never more than one mile from a charging station while in the city, which is a regional employment and shopping destination. The Energy Commission grant was used to install 14 Level 2 and six DC fast charging stations at six public sites: the Civic Center, McMaster Park, Columbia Park, Charles Wilson Park, Walteria Park, and downtown Torrance.
