Data last updated: Month Day, Year​

​Data Collection Information​Data is updated monthly and sourced from the Statewide Reach Code Program website (https://localenergycodes.com/) and reporting from Californian cities and counties. Once new zero-emission vehicle reach codes are adopted and reported/updated, the CEC is able to track them using this map tool. Every three years, cities and counties across California adopt new Building Standards Code or Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations. The current three-year cycle began in 2019 and will be updated in 2022; once new codes are adopted, the California ZEV Reach Code Map will be reset to reflect the new reach codes adopted by cities and counties across the state during the new code adoption cycle.
