ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATIONS
• The DGS was awarded funding through grants awarded by the
California Energy Commission and Department of Energy for the
purchase and installation of 24 level II Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging
stations. The 24 EV stations were installed in March 2012 by Coulomb
• The EV stations have been used 1,050 times beginning in March 2012 to
November 2012, or approximately 44 times a month.
(Usage data obtained from the ChargePoint.net website).
• The 24 EV stations currently in use are used by both monthly and
• The DGS plans on installing 9 additional EV charging stations at the
Fleet Garage located 1416 10th Street in Sacramento to support the DGS
electric vehicle fleet.
Choosing the Appropriate
EV Charging System
Provides charging through a 120 volt (V) AC plug
Most, if not all, PEVs will come with a Level 1 EVSE cordset so that no
additional charging equipment is required.
On one end of the cord is a standard, three-prong household plug. On
the other end is a J1772 standard connector which plugs into the vehicle.
Longer charging time - Level 1 charging adds about 2 to 5
miles of range to a PEV per hour of charging time.
» Provides charging through 240 V (typical in residential
applications) or 208 V (typical in commercial applications)
» Requires special installation of equipment and a dedicated
circuit of 20 to 80 amps.
» Level 2 adds about 10 to 20 miles of range per hour of
charging time, depending on the vehicle.
» Faster charging time
» More costly
