Paying for Public Charging
Charging at Government Agencies, Schools, & Other Tax Payer Funded Locations
Locations of proposed charging stations to serve California's key Corridors.
240 Volt Charging (J1772). All electric cars have a charging connector (or include an adapter) that allows connecting to 240 volt public charging stations. The standard designation for this connector is J1772. All 240 volt public charging stations use this connector.
DC Fast Charge. Most electric cars can be charged with high voltage DC power at public charging stations in roughly a half an hour. This usually amounts to about 80% of the car's driving distance which can be as much as 150 miles for some cars. Public fast charge stations are available throughout the United States.
