San Francisco Alternative Fuel Vehicle Readiness Plan

This Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Readiness Plan for the City and County of San Francisco is intended to guide the development of the City’s AFV readiness policies and infrastructure. The development and deployment of AFVs ready infrastructure, policies, and incentives are intended to encourage local residents and fleet managers to utilize AFVs with reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and toxic air contaminants. Key benefits of adopting Alternative Fuel Vehicles include improvement in local air quality, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions that impact climate change, increased use of renewable energy and sustainable biofuels, more efficient use of existing grid energy via off-peak Plug-in Electric Vehicle charging and energy storage, and increased energy security through reduction in the use of petroleum fuels.
