Electric Vehicle Charging Station Permit

Everyone knows that driving an electric or zero-emission vehicle can benefit the environment, as well as result in significant savings on fuel. But did you know that the City of Fremont's 94539 zip code is home to more electric vehicle (EV) drivers than any other zip code in California? 

With so many electric vehicles in this area, residents and builders need to remember that a permit is required for the installation of an electric vehicle charging station.
