San Francisco to Provide Free Electric Car Charging Through 2013

San Francisco has recently publicized that it will provide electric car charging free of charge until 2013, if not longer. According to Mayor Ed Lee’s office, both city-owned parking garages and the San Francisco International Airport will provide this service.

Beginning in June, almost ninety new charging stations will be set up throughout the city. Although there are only a small number of electric cars being used in San Francisco today, the city hopes that by enabling convenient battery charging the amount will increase. In today’s Nissan leaf, 180 minutes of charging time are worth around 80% power.

The program costs $300,000 in total. The funds will come from federal, state and local grants. The charging stations will be built at the garages of the following:

  • Civic Center
  • Ellis O’Farrell
  • Fifth & Mission
  • General Hospital
  • Golden Gateway
  • Japan Center
  • Lombard
  • Mission Bartlett
  • Moscone
  • North Beach
  • Performing Arts
  • Pierce Lombard
  • Polk Bush
  • Portsmouth Square
  • SFO
  • St. Mary’s Square
  • 1600 Mission Street
  • Stockton Sutter
  • Union Square
  • Vallejo Street
