EV Charging at City Facilities

City Hall Garage Rooftop EV Charger

As of May 2020, Sacramento operates 168 charging connectors at City-owned facilities. While 51 serve the City fleet, 117 are available for public or employee charging. Patrons of City parking facilities can charge their EV at no additional cost, except when using the pay-to-charge DC fast charger at Sacramento Valley Station. The EV Parking Map App provides additional details on chargers by type at each City facility.

EV charger upgrades complete at all 5 city-owned and operated parking garages

In May 2020, the City of Sacramento completed construction to replace and expand electric vehicle charging access at all five City-owned and operated parking garages (Capitol, City Hall, Memorial, Old Sacramento, and Tower Bridge garages). As a result, there are now 85 EV connectors available across the City's five garages, nearly doubling the amount of public chargers than previously available at these sites.

  • EV chargers were replaced with ChargePoint equipment. Therefore, all EV drivers wanting to charge their vehicles at the City-owned and operated parking garages will need to have a ChargePoint account in order to access the new chargers.
  • Electric vehicle charging will remain free at this time.
  • Number of EV connectors:
    • Capitol Garage (13 EV connectors)
    • City Hall Garage (40 EV connectors)
    • Memorial Garage (12 EV connectors)
    • Old Sacramento Garage (10 EV connectors)
    • Tower Bridge Garage (10 EV connectors)


Discounted monthly parking rates are available for owners or lessees of EVs in the following designated City parking facilities:

  • Capitol Garage
  • City Hall Garage
  • Memorial Garage
  • Old Sacramento Garage
  • Tower Bridge Garage

EV drivers are eligible for reduced monthly passes, subject to enrollment availability for each garage. More information and applications are available through the Parking Services’ EV Parking Program.

The City hosted two events in November 2019 to discuss proposed revisions to the EV Parking Program. However, due to the unprecedented nature of COVID-19, the City of Sacramento is working to adapt to the economic and social impacts of COVID-19 to prioritize recovery efforts accordingly. Although the immediate focus is protection of public health and safety, the City and its partners will continue to evaluate these unprecedented conditions to formulate the most sustainable response to this pandemic. This includes efforts to develop new strategies and invest in high-priority projects that achieve multiple objectives, including economic, social, and environmental benefits, with a focus on both climate and equity. Therefore, some of the City’s EV efforts, such as the originally proposed modifications to the EVPP, may shift or evolve due to the City responding to changes in commuting patterns due to the COVID19 pandemic. The previous proposed modifications are therefore put on hold until further notice.
