San Diego, California EV Charging Stations Info

General EV Charging Information

The city of San Diego in California, United States, has 1960 public charging station ports (Level 2 and Level 3) within 15km. 82% of the ports are level 2 charging ports and 13% of the ports offer free charges for your electric car.

San Diego is the second biggest city in California, and immersed in sun roughly 300 days of the year. Located at about 30 kilometers from the Mexican border, Tijuana, San Diego is very influenced by this Central American country. Neighbouring the Pacific Ocean, this metropolis stretches wide and far between two beautiful bays, giving it a privileged natural environment mingled with a Mediterranean climate.

In 2015, the University of San Diego established a partnership with EVgo to work on two important projects. EVgo has since built a charging infrastructure on the university’s campus to assess how owners of electric vehicle DC charging sites can leverage solar, battery storage. This is very interesting for the EV community, as the conducted research hopes to alleviate site host charges and provide services to the charging infrastructure.

Many of San Diego’s touristic sites can easily be accessed with an electric vehicle, as level 2 charging stations and level 3 charging stations are located within 10 miles of the city. Use ChargeHub’s charging station map to find stations offered by Tesla, Greenlots, Blink, EVgo and many more (available for iOS and Android).

Whilst in the historic neighbourhoods of Old Town and Gaslamp, many old gas lampposts have been preserved, giving the city a vintage spirit. In Balboa Park, about ten peculiar buildings have been converted into now popular museums such as the Air and Space Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCASD). Furthermore, you can easily charge your electric vehicle during your walk at one of the numerous level 2 charging stations available on site.

As for sports, baseball is well-appreciated by many residents of San Diego and a very striking stadium (in PETCO Park) has been built for their local baseball team, Los Padres of San Diego. You will find many level 2 charging stations on your way to this stadium.

These parks are located nearby one another. Why not go for a stroll from one site to another while your electric vehicle is charging?
