The free stations which are run by clean energy, may not be ultrafast but are equipped with off-grid, standalone level 2 chargers. Time and weather won’t raise any issues with these chargers as energy storage is built into the stations meaning they are always useable, making them not only affordable (free, duh) but also great for public access.
The stations can be located throughout Southern California’s rural Central Valley and inland areas. Two thirds of the chargers can be found at health care centers as Electrify America believes them to be perfect charging points thanks to their hours of access and high levels of traffic.
According to Electrify America: “Locations were selected after further analyzing communities with the greatest need for charging, existing charging options, and local travel patterns, among other factors.”
