Invest in an electric vehicle and reduce your carbon footprint. You can conveniently charge your vehicle around the City of Richmond.
The electric vehicle charging station at the Richmond Art Center (located at 2540 Barrett Ave.) has saved 2,670 gallons of gasoline – equivalent to 8,938 kg of greenhouses gases (GHG).
The City of Richmond recently submitted an EV Charger Demonstration grant application to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) requesting a DC fast charging station at the Richmond Swim Center (located at 4300 Cutting Blvd.), and a Level 2 charging station at the West Contra Costa Family Justice Center (located at 256 24th Street).
The 50kW DC fast charger with both a CHAdeMO and SAE combo connector can serve all electric vehicles with fast charging capabilities and can charge at a maximum of 200 miles of range per hour (RPH). The Level 2 charging station will offer a standard SAE J1772 charging port and can charge at a maximum rate of 25 miles of range per hour. These locations will increase access to publicly available EV charging stations within the City of Richmond.
