Together with the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA), Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) and Envoy have launched a new and affordable electric vehicle (EV) community car-share program. The program, called “Rancho San Pedro Electric Car Share,” was recently launched at HACLA’s Rancho San Pedro property, a 21-acre, 478-unit public housing site in the heart of the San Pedro community. The program will provide direct access and affordable hourly rates (as well as alternative payment methods for the unbanked population) to EV’s provided by Nissan to local residents. Envoy representatives conducted on-site training to HACLA community coaches, who are all enthusiastic to have the new EV program at Rancho San Pedro.

As a part of its Zero Emissions Mobility and Community Pilot Project Fund, LACI also recently launched its pilot EV Community Car-Share Program, “Pacoima Electro-Share,” at San Fernando Gardens in Pacoima, CA in July 2020. 

“Going green shouldn’t be reserved for only a specific socioeconomic status,” said HACLA President and CEO Doug Guthrie. “This electric vehicle share initiative provides a benefit to the community and environment as a whole. The Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles is proud to partner with LACI on this forward-thinking and innovative pilot program that brings both opportunity and access to our residents in a community that is often overlooked and underserved,” Guthrie added.

A win-win for everyone, this public-private partnership brings investment, jobs, and the benefits of a green economy to underserved communities while reducing air pollution.
