In support of the transition to a cleaner transportation economy, the City of Fremont has recently completed the installation of eight new publicly accessible, dual-port, Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. Six of these stations are located along Capitol Avenue between Fremont Boulevard and State Street, providing 12 on-street EV charging spaces. The other two stations are located in the parking lots of the City of Fremont’s Development Services Center at 39550 Liberty St. and the Central Park Visitor Center (Boathouse) at 1 Sailway Dr. The charging cost is $1.50 per hour, and the stations can be found on the Department of Energy’s Alternative Fueling Station website and on the PlugShare app or their website.
Electric vehicle adoption is a major greenhouse gas reduction initiative, resulting in a cleaner and more sustainable future for our community. Already, nearly 6 percent of Fremont households own at least one EV, and some neighborhoods boast EV ownership levels above 15 percent (View the map). In addition, Fremont’s 94539 zip code is home to more electric vehicle drivers than any other zip code in California! The deployment of these new EV charging stations in Downtown Fremont will help to support existing electric vehicle drivers as well as encourage conventional vehicle drivers to consider an EV as their next purchase.
