City of Sacramento Celebrates 100th EV Charging Station

April 18, 2013

The City of Sacramento, Calif., and Chargepoint announced that the City has reached a significant milestone with more than 100 electric vehicle charging stations installed in and around the California State Capitol. City Fleet coordinated and managed the project to completion.

Many of the 100 installed EV charging stations were made possible by a State and Federal grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) through the Transportation Electrification Initiative administered by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the California Energy Commission (CEC). This project has served to accelerate the development and production of electric vehicles to substantially reduce petroleum consumption, reduce greenhouse gas production, and create jobs. 

There are more than 500 electric vehicles registered in Sacramento including the Nissan LEAF, Chevrolet Volt, Prius Plug-in, and Ford Focus Electric. Many public parking garages, businesses, and retail locations have EV charging stations in the Sacramento-area. 

Other EV projects the City has worked on include testing wireless EV charging and installing solar-powered EV chargers.
