Charging Station

Employees and visitors take advantage of EV charging stations in Hayward.

Electric Vehicle Charging

The County is part of an effort to create a network of charging stations in the Bay Area open to the public. As a DOE Workplace Charging Partner, Alameda County added EV charging options at our major parking lots and garages.

Charging Station Locations

EV drivers can charge their vehicles at County-owned parking garages and lots in Alameda, Hayward, Oakland, and San Leandro. The County's charging stations are open to the public during regular business hours.

Dual Level 1 & Level II charging stations are located at:

  • Environmental Health Building, 1131 Harbor Bay Parkway, Alameda
  • Amador Parking Garage (first floor), 24360 Amador Street, Hayward

Charging Station Pricing

To maintain existing charging stations as well as further expand charging stations and support the growth of electric vehicles, Alameda County began charging a fee on February 17, 2015.

Level 1 or 2 Chargers

The price to charge at these County-owned EV charging stations includes two components, a base fee and an energy fee.

Base Fee Plus an Energy Fee
$1 for Level 1 or 2 charger $0.20/kWh delivered to the vehicle

DC Fast Charger (165 13th St., Oakland)

Beginning April 17, 2020, our DC Fast Charger has no base fee and is priced based on the time of day. When energy is cheaper and cleaner, we pass those savings on to the public.
