EV Charging Station Coming Soon

Printer-friendly version

The City of Brisbane will soon be debuting another EV Charging Station!  You may be aware that in 2014, the City approved a ground lease that permitted a private party (a Marina boater, actually!) to install a Level 2 charger in the parking lot near the Harbormaster's Office.

Join Mayor Clarke Conway for a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony at the City’s public Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station, located in the Brisbane Village Shopping Center (100 Old County Rd., Brisbane). The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Wednesday, February 14th at 10AM in the parking lot. Coffee and donuts will be provided. The public, notably EV owners and enthusiasts, are encouraged to join us and share their LOVE of clean vehicles!

The station features a ChargePoint DC Fast Charger which supplies 50kW of power through either a CHAdeMo or Combo connector and was partially funded by a grant from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) and the California Energy Commission (CEC). The City of Brisbane is providing free charging for sessions up to 45-minutes (after which a $5/hour fee will apply) for the first six months. The station supports the City’s Climate Action goals, and patrons of the station will be driving emissions-free thanks to Peninsula Clean Energy’s ECO100 product which provides 100% renewable energy and which the City has proudly opted up to. We look forward to seeing you there!

Note: All vehicles - American, Asian, European - that are capable of Level 3 (fast) charging can be charged by this unit; it has both the CHAdeMO and the SAE Combo CCS plugs.  Some vehicles are only capable of charging at a much slower rate (Level 2). This is better suited for chargers installed at the home and in the workplace since they take 3-8 hours for a full charge from empty.
