Electric Vehicle Charging Station Network
The City of Palm Springs has been pursuing installation of electric vehicle charging stations to make sure the City has a network ready for visitors and residents. In 2013 the City placed 34 stations around the City. In addition, funding has been secured and the City is working with local partners, to place a high-speed charging station by the end of 2017. Additionally, charging units are being installed at private residences and around the community at a variety of businesses for clients and customers.
City of Palm Springs is preparing itself to be fully charge ready. See the map below of charging units now ready and those coming soon.

Wheels For Wishes HAVE A CAR TO DONATE? orange.wheelsforwishes.org
How the program works: Wheels For Wishes is a car donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish Inland Empire. They offer a free and easy way to recycle or donate unwanted cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, or even boats, by turning them into a wish for a local child. They pick-up or tow away cars free of charge, anywhere in Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, whether they run or not. Vehicles are either recycled or auctioned off and 100% of the net proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire. They are a tax-exempt charity under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code, so you also receive the maximum possible tax deduction for your charity vehicle donation.
To donate, you can call at 1-855-860-9474 or fill out online vehicle donation form. They contact you within 24 hours to schedule your vehicle pick-up, which is completely free of charge. Lastly, they will mail out your tax deductible receipt, which you can save and deduct from your taxes at the end of the year.
