On July 10, 2023, Senate Bill (SB) 123 (Committee of Budget and Fiscal Review, Chapter 52, Statutes of 2023) was signed into law modifying SB 454, the "Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Open Access Act". SB 123 harmonizes requirements between the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Standards Regulation and the federal funding requirements in the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program established in 2022. Additionally, SB 123 grants the California Energy Commission (CEC) authority to develop a new regulation that will supersede the current CARB-adopted rule.
