EV: Electric Vehicle Charging Station Use

Charging station use:

In an effort to promote the use of Electric Vehicle’s, the Department of General Services (DGS) has acquired Electric Vehicle Charging Stations through a contracted vendor (ChargePoint) and has placed them in several of the DGS managed parking facilities. The DGS is pleased to make these stations available to State employees while at work and to the General Public, where feasible.

If you are the driver of an electric vehicle and you are interested in charging your vehicle in one of the DGS parking facilities, you may charge your vehicle using one of the three methods below:

  1. Use your existing ChargePoint account (if you do not have an existing account, and you would like to establish one, you may either contact ChargePoint directly at chargepoint.net or contact the DGS parking Unit for a ChargePoint card and brochure).
  2. Use your contactless credit (Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover) card to initiate charging.
  3. Call the toll free number (1-888-758-4389) just prior to your charging session to obtain over the phone credit card authorization. ChargePoint also offers an app where our customers can utilize their iPhone, Android or Blackberry to begin their charging session.
To start a charging session:
  1. Simply pull your electric vehicle (EV) into a designated EV charging station. Tap your Charge Point Card or contactless credit card on the station’s reader symbol.
  2. When your card is authorized, the station displays a message indicating that you can remove the connector from the holster and plug it into your vehicle.
  3. The station will display a message indicating that the vehicle is charging.
To stop a charging session:
  1. Tap your Charge Point Card or contactless credit card on the station’s reader symbol.
  2. The station will display a message indicating that the charging has finished and to return the connector to is holster.
  3. The station will display the charging duration and cost (if any) of your charging session.

Because charging stations are limited, the DGS requires that you move your EV to a standard parking space to allow another EV driver the opportunity to charge their vehicle.

Charging is limited to 4 hours or when your vehicle has reached full charge, whichever is less.

For additional information, please contact the Office of Fleet and Asset Management, Parking Unit at (916) 651-0365 or you may contact ChargePoint directly at chargepoint.net or 1-888-758-4389.
