In Arizona, the State Energy Office directed SEP funds to support the installation of eight electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, the purchase of one electric vehicle, and 11 energy efficiency improvements projects. One electric vehicle has been purchased to pilot a program where alternative fuel vehicles are purchased and utilized for fleet travel. In addition, eight EV charging stations have been installed throughout the capitol mall complex and Arizona State Fairgrounds. The energy efficiency improvement projects include developing an energy vision plan, installing energy efficient LED lighting, and replacing/upgrading equipment. For example, SEP funding is assisting the City of Douglas with critical energy efficiency upgrades to a city owned building needed to support a major private employer.
